More kudos for Corti

Darrell Corti, the grocer and gourmand behind Corti Brothers, is set to receive an award for his dedication to Italian wines. On Jan. 27 Corti will be inaugurated into the Italian Trade Commission's Hall of Fame at a dinner and ceremony in New York City, with such fellow inductees as Piero Selvaggio (Valentino Ristorante; Santa Monica, Ca.), Burton Anderson (author of "The Wines Atlas of Italy") and Victor Hazan (author of "Italian Wine").

It's the second hall of fame honor for Corti in two years. In March of 2008, Corti was inducted into the Vintners Hall of Fame, along with such wine legends as Paul Draper (Ridge Vineyards) and Milijenko "Mike" Grgich (Grgich Hills Winery). These upcoming accolades are for "outstanding leadership, contribution and lifelong dedication to the appreciation, education and marketing of Italian wines in the U.S."
