About The French Wine Merchant
More than 30 years ago, Maurice Amiel moved from Paris to New York, where he first opened The French Wine Merchant. A second East Coast shop followed, but when his success led to retirement in Palm Beach, he got restless. So, Maurice opened up another shop, just to "make sure I have good wines for myself and others," he told the Palm Beach Post. Now Maurice is bringing his wines and wine tastings to the DC area!
Maurice offers high-quality wine tastings from obscure, overlooked producers in France, Italy, and around the world. Rather than procuring wine from importers, distributors, or the struggling car salesmen forced to burrow into local vineyards, Maurice relies on his network of relationships with vintners and artisan producers themselves. That rapport gives him the ability to corral products for you to taste and experience at his exclusive tastings.
