John Coyle | Global Wine Specialist and Educator Discusses Wine Trends
I’m humbled and honored to start off my inaugural series of video interviews with winemakers, vineyard owners, sommeliers, restaurantuers and wine importers with an interview of John Coyle, Global Wine Specialist and Educator. John and I have known each other for almost twenty five years. We met as room mates in Chelsea, New York City in the late 80’s. And as young men we tore up the city. I honored to call John my friend. He’s a husband, a father of two gorgeous kids….one going off to college soon and is super passionate about wine. He’s built his business and wine portfolio from the ground up in a sharks market…..New York City. John is in the enviable position of having a client lists that encompasses the top tier restaurants in New York City. John has traveled the world sourcing and importing wine for the last 16 years. I had the pleasure of interviewing John at his digs in the Tribeca, NYC.
