Paul Grieco of Hearth & Terroir (pic from Stuart Pigott's Planet Wine)

Stoked to hear, hot off the presses of the Beard Foundations Twitter account, that my boss/colleague/compatriot/rebel-rouser/mentor/fearless maniac, Paul Grieco, just won the 2012 James Beard Award for Outstanding Wine, Beer, or Spirits Professional.

This is awesome, well-deserved news for me and all the other glorious misfits that call Hearth & Terroir home.  Well done, Paul.

In honor of this glorious occasion, Paul will be planting 12 hairs of his devilishly long goatee in slate-filled vineyards all over the world…but mostly in the Mosel.

I was reminded of a movie clip we made (driven by the great Steven Solomon)—a long time ago it seems—when we were opening Terroir-Tribeca in April 2010.  We shot this footage unassumingly, and told ourselves we couldn’t stop it, or edit it.  In it, you get a close look at some of the characters in our bizarre world—including some classic moments with Paul.
