In this episode of his Northern Wine Odyssey podcast, host Paul Brady talks to his friend Amber Rill, who is the assistant beverage director at Corkbuzz Wine Studio in Manhattan NY, where she also oversees consumer and private wine classes.
Corkbuzz is an amazing venue for wine education, and recently Amber and I were able to join a seminar on New York wines moderated by Kevin Zraly, who is the author of the No. 1 selling wine book in the world, Windows On the World. Kevin was also the sommelier at the restaurant Windows On The World at The World Trade Center in Manhattan up until September 11, 2001, and luckily for all, he was not there on that tragic day. Kevin is also a celebrated wine educator having taught his classes to thousands in the New York City area throughout his career.
So this is Amber and I shooting the shit on Christmas eve, of 2020, reflecting on Kevin’s seminar, wine education, jobs in the wine education sphere, and New York wines.
