Find out what "real nice guy" Joe Campanale of Anfora, L’Artusi and dell' Anima has to say about favorite producers, fame, influences and even social media.
Sometimes it’s hard to get the undivided attention of a New York sommelier or wine director. In fact, many of us might just feel that it is impossible. The truth is, we are competing with so many people when working with these guys that they can only give us a thin slice of what we would like to have.
Now, if you’re sommelier extraordinaire Levi Dalton and your willing to work around the schedules of New York City’s greatest wine personalities, you can get plenty of face time to chat, joke around and tease out information from these fine folks.
Levi spent several weeks this summer gathering up these exceptionally informative and entertaining interviews with some of the most highly regarded people in the business today, and we are thrilled to be able to share them with you. We’ll be starting this series of interviews with a young man I have known for quite a few years and whose remarkable achievements fill me with great respect. Joe Campanale is name many of you will recognize. His work as the wine director at New York restaurants dell'Anima, L’Artusi and Anfora has been well documented, and it’s safe to say that Joe’s early risk taking has paid off handsomely.
I would suggest viewing the video in its entirety, mostly because I had a hard time narrowing down the highlights for you. Either way, here are some of the scenes you can’t miss.
