Ann C. Dutton
Senior Wine Associate, Premium Wine & Spirits
Ann’s interest in cooking was enhanced by a four year residence in a cooperative dormitory prior to graduation from William Smith College in Geneva, New York. When a friend gave her Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking,” wine entered her life. Trying the wines that Julia recommended opened the door to a new world. In pursuit of her passion, she joined wine societies. Research laboratories were her everyday world, but on vacation, she traveled to France, Italy, California and the wine regions of New York. Wine seminars in Burgundy, France and Tuscany and Piedmont Italy added to her knowledge and interest in wine, and especially in the pairing of food and wine. Fifteen years ago, she joined the Premier Group and her avocation became her vocation. In 1995, when Premium was opened, she joined the staff as a Senior Wine Associate. She is excited by the quantum leaps which have been made by the New York wine industry and wishes that more New York restaurants would serve New York wines. Her quests are “great wine and food combinations” and “delicious wine at great prices.” Ann says it’s impossible for her to choose a single favorite wine, since there are so many choices available today, but her favorite regions are Ribera del Duero, La Mancha, Piedmont, Rhone and New York’s Finger Lakes. She loves talking with customers and helping them find the wines they will enjoy.
