Now at Morrell Wine Bar: world-class wines by the glass

Morrell Wine Bar & Cafe, NYC

The Morrell Wine Group has been around since the 1940s and is associated with several important “firsts” in the New York wine scene. In 1994, Morrell & Company became the first to hold a fine wine auction open to the public and the first to offer wine auctions online. In 1999, Morrell Wine Bar & Café opened at 1 Rockefeller Center next to their retail store. Amazingly it was the first wine bar in NYC dedicated to serving a wide range of wines by the glass. Their wine bar is on our “must visit” list when we’re the city.

I received an email from Roberta Morrell this morning—at the wine bar they have just upped their own ante.

They are now serving true world-class wines by the glass. For example:

Nenin Pomerol 2006                                           $47/glass
“Bright crushed berry, chocolate and licorice aromas follow
through to a full body, with ultra-refined tannins and a long,
polished finish. There’s a lovely texture to this wine.”

Here’s today’s menu: Morrell Wine by the glass

Morrell Wine Bar, stuffed mushrooms

By the way, the folks there know their way around some tasty treats, also—steak tartare is not to be missed and stuffed mushrooms piled high with crab. Cheers!

As a Sr. Writer at T. Rowe Price, I work with a group of the best copywriters around. We belong to the broader creative team within Enterprise Creative, a part of Corporate Marketing Services. _____________________________________________ A long and winding road: My path to T. Rowe Price was more twisted than Fidelity’s green line. With scholarship in hand, I left Kansas at 18 to study theatre in New York. When my soap opera paychecks stopped coming from CBS and started coming from the show’s sponsor, Proctor & Gamble, I discovered the power of advertising and switched careers. Over the years I’ve owned an ad agency in San Francisco; worked for Norman Lear on All in the Family, Good Times, Sanford and Son, and the rest of his hit shows; and as a member of Directors Guild of America, I directed Desi Arnaz in his last television appearance— we remained friends until his death. In 1988 I began freelancing full time didn’t look back. In January 2012 my rep at Boss Group called and said, “I know you don’t want to commute and writing for the financial industry isn’t high on your wish list, but I have a gig with T. Rowe Price in Owings Mills…” I was a contractor for eight months, drank the corporate Kool-Aid, became a TRP associate that August, and today I find myself smiling more often than not.
