Paul Geisz has been involved with wine for over twenty years. He takes delight in pairing the wine with food for the monthly winemaker’s dinners at his restaurant, The Village Tavern, in Hammondsport, New York. There also you will find a reserve of over 700 wines with over 70 available by the glass. He has judged the wines at the New York State Fair in Syracuse and the International Eastern Wine Competition. Also noteworthy is that his establishment is featured in Lonely Planet and has received the Wine Spectator Magazine Award for Excellence for many years and Restaurant of the Year from the New York State Wine and Grape Foundation. Paul is currently developing a new wine dispensing system. When not involved with the business, he also finds time to write and is a published poet. His most recent work may be found in Fine Lines, a literary magazine.
