It’s always the old influences for me. I grew up with a family that regarded Cotes-du-Rhone as being a bit interesting, so my first real exposure to good wine was while excavating a Roman villa just by Ostia…..which gave me a taste for Barolo, Barbaresco, or Brunello – basically anything red, Italian and beginning with a B!
