The Art of…

The Intern

For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of meeting our dear friend Artur Podniesinski, well – we sincerely hope you do someday. He’s a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable character who has been both a huge inspiration and a great help as we’ve transitioned into the wine industry. Starting out by working at his parents’ wine shop in Long Island, Art has since launched his own line of incredible wines called “The Intern.” And when we began this crazy adventure, he was one of only a handful of “wine insiders” that we knew. More than just sharing ideas and providing advice, Art actually put us in touch with Summer and Fabrizio of Iuli Winery where we’re currently working, so THANK YOU ART!

And what an experience it’s shaping up to be! With the relatively small production, we’re really able to participate in every stage of the winemaking process. In just two short weeks, we’ve helped with the actual harvest, crushing/de-stemming, and have even bottled some previous vintages. On top of getting all this production experience, we’ve also had the opportunity to taste a number of extraordinary wines from Summer and Fabrizio’s personal cellar. Cheers to you Art, we wouldn’t be here without you!
