Joe Dressner: 1951-2011

It is with heavy hearts that we reflect upon the death of Joe Dressner, a close colleague and friend of Wine Wizards. Joe was a highly regarded wine importer with a focus on wines from the "Old World," including France, Italy, Spain, and Portugal. The wines imported by Louis/Dressner Selections are generally made by small producers who do not incorporate chemicals or additives to their practices in the vineyard, winery, or cellar. Producers represented in our portfolio include Château d'Oupia, Domaine de la Pépière, and Quinta do Infantado.

Please visit the following sites to learn more about Louis/Dressner Selections and the legacy that Joe has left behind:

At the Start

We are thrilled to launch this blog at the start of the autumn season and on the eve of our fall portfolio tasting. Our hope is that Musings of Wine Wizards will serve as a source of information and support for our clients and, in turn, their customers and the culture of wine within the state of Rhode Island. Tasting notes, thoughts on the industry, documentation of our time in the field, and links to articles will appear in the near future. We hope that you will engage with us and enjoy.

Cheers to the start of the season!

Members of the Trade: We look forward to seeing you at our warehouse tasting on
Monday, September 26th from 2-6pm.
Please contact your account manager or the Wine Wizards office (401.624.3710) with any questions and for directions.
