"Start spreadin' the news, I'm leavin' today
I want to be a part of it
New York, New York
These vagabond shoes, are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it
New York, New York"
Indeed - good old Frank. And he's right, the news is spreading as wines from the States are coming of age. When I joined Oddbins in 1985, the only New World wines we stocked were from Robert Mondavi, probably the founding father of modern American wines. And Boy, have they come a long way since those days. Those vagabond shoes have been straying all right as winemakers are starting to make a brand new start of it and producing superb wines in many different areas. California is just one wine producing region of this vast country - nowadays there's many other up and coming areas that are producing cool climate beauties that are a million miles away from Mondavi's early efforts.
Yes, we'll be looking at some of the new and interesting winemaker's fine wines and looking far beyond California, as well as checking out that homeland on our journey. Come and taste a selection of new wave wines from the US of A - you won't regret it!
"I'll make a brand new start of it
In old New York
If I can make it there, I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you, New York, New York"
