Gastronomic SLC’s pick: Libation stands out for us. Owner and operator Francis Fecteau is tack-sharp when it comes to working with only the best small wineries and distilleries. The brands he represents here in Utah are always a slam dunk in terms of quality. We can directly recommend Francis’ thoughtful and intelligent approach to boutique wines and spirits!
Libation is a wine and spirits brokerage specializing in program development, industry training and consumer education. We are here to elevate the dialogue. By focusing on assisting our restaurant industry friends in creating the most successful beverage programs possible, through education and exposure to the farmers that bring those wines to fruition, happier palates abound from restaurateur to consumer. People know more of our wineries, winemakers, and distillers on a first name basis than most and we think that’s the way it ought to be. People should know their food, because wine is food right? They should know the farmers that bring it to life. That’s why we’re here. (via website)

Flora/Fauna Wines is a small, independently owned and operated wine brokerage located in Salt Lake City, Utah. Our goal is to introduce authentic, terroir-focused and natural wines made by artisanal producers rather than large, corporately owned wineries. We prefer wines made with organic and sustainably farmed fruit using natural techniques without any commercial additives—yeast, powdered tannin, coloring agents, acid, enzymes, nutrients, etc. Just like us, all of the wineries we represent are independently owned and operated.
