August 28, 2020

André Mack has traveled a circuitous path throughout the wine world, from wine drinker to sommelier to vintner and now restaurateur. Throughout his journey, he has kept fresh eyes and a passion for making wine welcoming to everyone. In a recent episode of Straight Talk with Wine Spectator, executive editor Thomas Matthews spoke with Mack about the many twists in his career, making wine more relatable and opening a restaurant in his own community.

On September 1, Straight Talk will feature Ben Aneff, president of the U.S. Wine Trade Alliance and managing partner at Tribeca Wine Merchants, hosted by Wine Spectator news editor Mitch Frank. As head of the Wine Trade Alliance, Aneff has taken a leading role in organizing the industry to oppose tariffs on imported wines. On September 3, associate tasting coordinator Aleks Zecevic will speak with Eben Sadie, winemaker at Sadie Family Wines. Sadie is one of the trailblazers of South African winemakers, known for embracing the forgotten old vines of South Africa and promoting the heritage of the country.
