From the website of Kingston Wine: Kingston Wine Co. is in the historic waterfront district of downtown Kingston and is a meeting place for Old and New World wines. Kingston Wine Co. focuses on classic, traditionally made wines with little added and little taken away. Most of the wines selected are made using time-honored, historically rich techniques, achieving an authentic expression of place, history, and culture. The owners, Michael and Theresa Drapkin, are committed to the strong cultural narrative that weaves together wine and food in context.
After an externship on a farm in southern France, as well as almost a decade of wine experience in Washington, DC and New York city, including time at Vestry Wines in Tribeca and Balthazar, Michael enjoys educating others about the time-honored approach to making agricultural products by hand and the pleasures of the table.
With an M.F.A. in Design from Pratt Institute, Theresa has a passion for creating warm, inviting experiences with distinctive identity.
