John Downing – Senior Wine Buyer for Hi Time Wine
This show focuses on the retail aspect of buying wine. There is no reason for a novice wine buyer to be intimidated about going into a wine store and asking for help finding a bottle of wine.
Our guest today is Senior Wine Buyer John Downing. John has been in the business for over 8 years and focuses on international wines but he gives us a great insight into buying wine from your local retailer.
John works at Hi-Time Wine Cellars, a wine and spirits shop founded 1957. The store, which is one of the largest in the USA, is both a traditional brick and mortar establishment while also offering a full e-commerce online shopping option. Hi-Time Cellars offers an email newsletter and can be found at Hi Time Wine
