5@5 is a daily, food-related list from chefs, writers, political pundits, musicians, actors, and all manner of opinionated people from around the globe.

Paul Grieco is the general manager and sommelier of Hearth restaurant, as well as two wine bars, Terroir and Terroir Tribeca, in New York City.

The irreverent wine guru is known for searching out inspiration in the more far flung regions of the vino world.

As a self-proclaimed Riesling-fanatic, Grieco's passion for the white wine runneth so deep, he dedicates an entire season to it. The "Summer of Riesling" includes temporary Riesling tattoos, a Riesling wine bar crawl, a concert featuring "four bands chosen for their high acidity, elegant concentration of fruit and incredible sense of place" and an audience with the Riesling Queen from Germany.

When he's not beating up Bordeaux or swirling Scheurebe, he's teaching his sons the important lessons about life in the restaurant biz.
