Who: Jenny Kornblum, sommelier, Grace Restaurant, Fort Worth, Texas

What: 2012 Macedon Pinot Noir, Macedonia

Why: “It’s fun to try wines from unusual places, especially when they pleasantly surprise you like this one,” says Kornblum. Macedon is from Gradsko in the Republic of Macedonia, which is the same latitude as Burgundy and the Russian River Valley. This is a classic, easy-drinking style of Pinot Noir.
