About wine, Farrell shares: I take a classic approach to wine, which is to say an affinity for Old World wines, and I certainly consider wine an art, a form of poetry, and a muse, a portal to the mysteries and evocations of language. Elegance and grace are important qualities to me, and this is my approach to selecting wine be it for a restaurant, retailer, private client-or myself.
Paige Farrell lives on Cape Ann, in Massachusetts.
