For Charles Zoulias, president of wine importer and distributor Perfecta Wine Company in New Hampshire, the Family Winemakers tasting served as an opportunity to find a "few more California wines to round out our portfolio," he said.
Although this was the first time he
had attended the San Francisco tasting, he
expected to find some producers he
was interested in working with."Out of 400 wineries, if you can't find one that makes sense, you aren't really looking." Zoulias
added that having small wineries pouring at the show was a benefit, "because all of the larger wineries are already represented in our state."
