After college I spent a year traveling to every major wine region in France, Italy, Spain, Germany, and Portugal.
In April 1976, I was lucky enough to be hired by the restaurant guru Joe Baum (The Four Seasons, The Forum of the Twelve Caesars, The Rainbow Room..) who said to me, “create the biggest and best wine list New York has ever seen.. ” Within two years Windows on the World had the largest wine list in the United States and sold more wine than any other restaurant in the world.
The restaurant atop 1 World Trade Center was a private club at lunch.
In the Fall of 1976 I began a wine course for our club members.
