Winemaker Andrew Halliwell of San Sebastián Food

Dropping in to San Sebastián Food’s wine tasting space today I met with winemaker Andrew Halliwell.  Walking in, the long table caught my eye—a glass-topped Basque fishing boat—and I knew I was in an artistic culinary explorers’ scene.  Andrew lucidly guided me through the origins and the processing of a few bottles before I could find out more about the man himself.  When he handed me his own “Viña Pomal” from Bodegas Bilbainas, I knew I had to hear more about the skill behind such a piece of liquid art.
