Letter from the Editor
It’s exciting for us to have some big-name contributors to this month’s “Tasting Notes,” two of whom also happen to longtime friends: The inimitable Anthony Giglio, a longtime contributor to Food & Wine and the Wine Director of the American Express Centurion Global Lounge Network, and James Beard Award-winning writer Jordan Mackay.
