Join us Wednesday, June 17th, from 4:30-7:30pm, when we welcome Luis Moya, Founder of Vinos Unico, to our Wine Bar. Vinos Unico means Unique Wines, and you will discover that not only the wines are unique. Luis is something of a character himself. He always arrives at our shop with an impish smile on his face when he presents wines for our consideration. There is a knowing look and a sense of anticipation, a bit of the cat that ate the canary attitude. He obviously loves wines and presents his current discoveries with such care and affection you would think they were his children.
He cannot understand why wine has become a religion in many circles. "It needs to be drunk and enjoyed, appreciated! Why does it need a score?" Since many of his imports are tiny producers that never get reviewed or are lost in the ocean of wines discussed in the wine magazines, Luis decided to take matters into his own hands. In order to satisfy the buyers that absolutely needed a number he came up with the Vinos Unico staff scoring system. His staff consists of one person, Luis. He believes all of his wines are delicious, unique, typical of their region of origin, and are great values, so they all get a perfect score: 100 points! Put that on your shelf talker you score hounds.
All kidding aside, Luis continually brings us delicious wines that are pure in flavor, true to the grape type and region, and are incredibly well-priced. Spain and Portugal are in the midst of a winemaking revolution, with young talents taking their wines to the next level of quality with every step. Luis has his fingers on the pulse of these dynamic regions. We look forward to each and every visit. Please join us for this exciting evening that promises to be loads of fun with Luis running the show. We think you will have as much fun tasting through this array of his personally selected wines as we do when he makes his monthly sales call.
Come taste some truly remarkable wines that are distinctive in their purity, delicious in flavor, and represent wonderful value. We relish the opportunity to showcase Luis Moya at Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant to enlighten and entertain us with his brilliant line up of wonderful wines and his sparkling personality.
