Meet wine importer - Fran Kysela

We are extremely excited to announce that one of wine world's finest palates, Fran Kysela, the founder of Kysela Père et Fils will be at The Wine and Cheese Place on Tuesday October 18 hosting a wine tasting.

We have been bringing in the wines of Fran Kysela for well over 10 years.    He was just nominated as a candidate for Importer of the Year by The Wine Enthusiast Magazine.  (Winner to be announced on Dec 15).

"Fran Kysela....began his career as the national sales manager for the import arm of Kermit Lynch's sprawling wine business. Subsequently, he worked briefly for another high quality importer, Weygandt-Metzler in Unionville, Pennsylvania. Inevitably, Kysela founded his own firm, dedicated to discovering high quality top estates in France and Italy. Kysela's offerings all tend to be extremely pure, ripe, fruity short, faithful reflections of their appellations....In a few short years Kysela has emerged as one of the finest palates and selectors of top wine, whether it be an inexpensive Muscadet or a top of the line Burgundy. " -- Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

Became only the 12th United States Member of the Court of Master Sommelier in 1989.
