Ben, since you're in NY, you're in luck: Look for the French wines imported by Louis/Dressner and the Italian wines imported by John Given.
This combination will give you enough really interesting, excellent QPR wines to last you for a good long time.
Also get to know the folks at Chambers Street Wines, who handle most of Dressner's stuff. I don't know if they have John's, but if you strike out on finding the Given Italians, let me know, and I'll get you contact info.
I realize this isn't exactly the list of specifics you asked for, but trust me, this advice will make you happy.
