Tune in for a great episode of In the Drink featuring guest Scott Pactor.  Scott is the founder and owner of Appellation Wine & Spirits.  The store features a highly curated list focusing on small producers, organic, and biodynamic wines as well as artisanal spirits. Food & Wine named Appellation as one of the country’s top natural wine stores.  Scott and his team taste everything before purchasing for the store.  Prior to entering the wine business Scott worked in finance until 2012.  He always had a passion for wine and when a position opened to work at Balthazar’s wine department he jumped at the opportunity.  He then went on to work at Lidia Bastianich’s Felidia’s in Midtown East as well as a few other retail shops. Appellation this past fall celebrated its 10th Anniversary.
