My name is Blaine Hunt. I have ten years of experience in the wine industry, as a sommelier, a consultant, and a distributor. Having the opportunity to work in these disparate parts of the wine industry, I have been able to attain a well-rounded wine knowledge. Not only can I tell you about classic varietals and regions, and lead you on the deductive path, should that be your goal, I can also tell you about the behind-the-scenes parts of wine-making: bio-dynamic farming, fermentation science, and wine-making choices made in the cellar (what vessel to choose for elevage, racking decisions, and, finally, sales.)
I am not a wine professional that spends all of their time in a restaurant or behind a computer. I travel to all of the best wine-making regions, and meet with the producers, tour the vineyards, and, if I’m lucky, have dinner with the family!
During my career, I have had the privilege of working with the following wine luminaries: Fred Dame MS (Somm movies), Rajat Parr (Sandhi, Evening Land, Domaine de la Cote), Greg Harrington MS (Gramercy Cellars), Brandon Tebbe MS. I currently work with the following wineries: Arnot-Roberts, Mayacamas, Bedrock, Pax, Evening Land, Ovum, Dagueneau, Agrapart, Fourrier, Giacomo Conterno, COS, Occhipinti, Ar.Pe.Pe
, among many others.
