A Farewell from Dan Weber
This Saturday, August 2 will be my last official shift here at Flatiron Wines. After two amazing years at the shop, I am leaving to work for Schatzi Wines, a new importer focused on German, Austrian and French growers. I will be working directly with wine stores and restaurants here in New York as well in other markets up and down the east coast. I am very excited to learn another side of the wine business and to work even more closely with the producers.
It has been one of the great pleasures of my life to have been a part of Flatiron Wines from the embryonic stages to seeing it grow into the great wine shop that it is today. The concept was simple, create the wine store where we would want to shop (makes sense because we would actually have to be there everyday!): a place where we could all explore and learn about wine in a fun, friendly, communal way. I am so happy to have made so many great friendships and to have had the opportunity to share so many wonderful stories and delicious bottles together over these past few years.
So if you’re around, please come by and help me take my last shift in style. I will be here from 11:30-7:30. I am planning to open a few interesting bottles in the late afternoon and would love to see as many familiar faces as possible.
I can’t wait to share the next part of my wine journey with you guys and I am sure that we will continue to have the chance to share in the magic of wine in the weeks, months and years ahead.
From the bottom of my heart, my most sincere thanks to all of you who have made this experience so memorable.
