We recently sat down with Dave Miner to ask him five questions about himself. See what his responses were! 

To decant or not to decant? 
Decanting younger wines is always helpful, no matter the color.

What wines do you like to drink? 
I like to drink good wine from anywhere.

Screw cap or cork? 
Cork for any wine that will age. For immediate drinking, screw caps are fine.

What glassware do you like? 
Riedel stemware, varietally specific is the best.

Most memorable meal? 
My most memorable meals involve people, food and wine. My first dinner in the Rhone Valley years ago in Ampuis with Yves Cuilleron, Francois Villard, Pierre Gaillard, Yves Gangloff and their friends and family was one of the best nights I can recall. We laughed all night and didn't even speak the same language.
