Owner Matt Lombard – farmer, restauranteur, lover of fine wine and food – is opening the Decant Wine Shop in Woodstock, located in the same building as his restaurant Manglaista.
While he will mainly focuses on the farming and stewardship of the land and of course, the craft. Keven Ring will direct the shop, a Court of Master Sommeliers certified sommelier, a 30+ year hospitality professional including seven years at Twin Farms in Barnard, VT, and eight years at Simon Pearce in Quechee, VT.
Keven has traveled to France, Italy, Austria, Portugal, South Africa, California, and Oregon, getting to know the regions, creating friendships and relationships with vignerons/producers and he will use that knowledge to bring the Decant Wine Shop a unique selection of wines from around the globe. With over 30 years working in the restaurant/hotel/wine world, Keven is here to help clients find a bottle for dinner, a case or two for that special event, or to start/expand a home cellar.
The shop is proud to work with most, if not all, Vermont’s wine distributors, along with some of the finest importers and small wineries not carried by local distributors. Some of those include Artisanal Cellar, Farrell, Baker, Vermont Wine Merchants, Vermont Wine Shepherd, 802 Distributors, Baker, Kermit Lynch, Rosenthal, Vineyard Brands, Jenny & Francois, Dressner, Vine Street, Wildman, Eric Solomon, and many more.
