Alex Patinios of Dionysus Wines & Spirits appears to have quite an eye for predicting trends in the wine world.
From the phenomenal success of Argentina’s Mendoza-based Fuzion brand to the more recent $7.95-a-bottle Spanish Tempranillo/Merlot blend called Toro Bravo that has been causing quite a storm, Alex seems to know just what the wine consumer wants even before they do.
