About Corso Selections:
Our goal at Michael Corso Selections is simple: to import top quality wines at the best possible prices. Our belief is in the growers: good growers will always make good wine. We travel regularly and extensively in France seeking those producers whose wines offer a classical profile and express the unique qualities of their specific terroirs. We work predominantly with small vignerons who are keenly aware of the importance of the land that they pass on to their children and grandchildren. Hence, many of the wines we import are produced sustainably, many organically and all are made with a respect for quality. We believe in letting the winemakers make the wine; we are not interventionist importers. We like wines that are meant to be enjoyed with food, wines with freshness and acidity, wines that are finely balanced and not overpowering. Since 1972, Mike Corso has worked in virtually all aspects of wine sales: retail, restaurant, wholesale distribution, importer representative and importer, always with a concentration on European wines. Michael Corso Selections offers the expertise of over 40 years of experience in the wine trade, the quality of hand-selected wines from small, family domaines and the character of wines rooted in traditional styles.
