Dr. Vino: The wine award winners
Two wine awards announced: importer Terry Theise for Wine & Spirits Professional and John Ragan of Eleven Madison Park for outstanding wine service.
Terry Theise blew a kiss at the crowd with both hands as he came on stage, cited people who believed in him, including his 75 growers and the Skurniks, his NY distributor. He ended by calling his wife, chef Odessa Piper, “a fox.”
John Ragan, pictured here with Eleven Madison Park GM Will Guidara, said in the press room that he is “super excited.”
