With over 25 years’ experience dedicated to the study of Italian wine Fred Mullins of Vias Imports is an engaging and knowledgeable speaker with great insight and perspective.
“I’ve sat in quite a few seats in the business of wine from being a partner in a small artisan importer, a wine director for retail shops and restaurants, a portfolio manager, and now a sales manager for VIAS Imports. I’ve been lucky enough to work with and alongside some of the best in brightest in the world of wine. It’s the passion for wine that drives me. The drive goes far beyond enjoying wine… it’s really about being able to share my experiences and knowledge with others. My focus through the years has always been on devoting as much time and effort as I am able to the discipline that is wine. The culture of wine is an ever-shifting landscape that requires not only knowledge but the ability to relate your expertise while being objective and open minded.”
Jasper Hill is a working dairy farm with an on-site creamery in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. An underground aging facility maximizes the potential of cheeses made by the creamery, as well as those made by other local producers. Leftover whey from the cheesemaking process is fed to heritage breed pigs, roaming the woodlands beyond the cows’ pasture. Rosemont Market & Bakery has been sharing Jasper Hill’s delicious cheeses with our community for years.
