About Jeffrey Wooddy - as written by Liz Johnson in the lohudfoodblog:
"Our job is to prepare ourselves with the best wines at various prices that we can get our hands on - and then be ready when a customer comes in," he says. "We're librarians and these are our stacks. And we need to be ready to say, 'I think you should meet this wine. This will be perfect with what you're having.'"
Wooddy - along with the shop's owners, Dieter Kannapin and his son, Derek Kannapin - tastes between 6,000 and 7,000 wines to select the 1,700 they offer for sale at any one time, so Wooddy can tell you, for example, that Beringer Reserve Chardonnay has gone back to its original, no-oak style, or recount the time he lunched with Mount Eden Vineyards winemaker Jeffrey Patterson on his front porch, tasting every vintage of his wines going back to the 1990s.
"This is what Rochambeau does," says Wooddy. "We don't wait for the wine world to come to us, we go and seek it out. And that's how we know everything that's here."
