Simply put, Anthony Terlato has been there and done that. Growing up in an Italian household where wine was always accompanied by food, Terlato went on to head up an empire that encompassed wine production, education, and distribution. In Taste: A Life in Wine, he writes about the wine industry through a personal lens, as he was there for many important moments in the U.S. wine industry in the 20th Century. From the time of 50 cent glasses of restaurant table wine to the current mass appeal of wine across borders, Terlato lived the wine life as it rose to prominence, and now not only distributes wine but also owns several wineries. I have a soft spot in my heart for the Terlato Wine Group, as they are a locally-based business here outside of Chicago. Maybe one day I'll get invited to their corporate headquarters, Tangley Oaks, for one of their famous wine and food tasting meals. One can only dream.
