(EN) California-based natural wine maven Amy Atwood founded her namesake distribution company, Amy Atwood Selections, in 2009, after over 15 years of working with wholesalers and importers. Focusing on smaller production wineries with organic or sustainable farming practices and little to no intervention, Amy has since created Oeno wines, made in Healdsburg, California, and co-founded her own line of spirits, including Future Gin, a dry gin with the dynamic flavors of Southern California, and Flora rosé vermouth, made with rosé of pinot noir from Sonoma County. Here, she shares her favorite places to eat and drink in LA, and the producers to watch right now.
