Joshua Wesson – Wine Host, Brooklyn Crush Wine & Artisanal Food Festival: Fall Edition
About Joshua Wesson
Once a hugely respected and award-winning sommelier who reveled in the extravagance of princely pours, Josh now sips from the cups of carpenters in his never-ending quest for deliciousness and drinkability.
Co-founder of Best Cellars and, for the past decade, Jet Blue’s wine captain, Josh also works with companies such as Fairway Market, Red Farm, Pacific Catch and Urban Plates in their pursuit of great wine values. In late 2012, he debuted the retail concept, Best Bottles, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. In February of 2016, Josh opened Suprema Provisions, a market and wine bar in the West Village devoted to all things delectable.
Josh is a featured speaker at many wine & food events across the country. He is is also a regular commentator on NPR/Public Radio International’s The Splendid Table with Lynne Rossetto Kasper. Most mornings, you can find Josh hanging out at Tarallucci e Vino on 83rd and Columbus, reading The New York Post while sipping a cortado. Best to give him a wide berth until he finishes Page Six.
