Stay True Radio: Dale Sparks

Dale Sparks is almost a native,  he spent his first 7 years in Iowa, but was raised in Tucson, went to University of Arizona and tripped his way into wine as a sommelier at Anthony’s in the Catalina’s in Tucson from 1989-1997. He was recruited to be cellar master at the Phoenician and left the Phoenician to start Boutique wines and after three years (and 9/11) he left and started Quench fine wines in 2003. He sold Quench in 2010 and started 220 Imports, focusing on the worlds classic wine regions – Rioja & Tuscany so far: we are exploring other regions; Uruguay, Jura and Mornington Peninsula.
