Food Critic Blows It Over Botched Fellatio Joke

Date: Thu, Jul 31, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Context: The Keystone of Wine Education

Date: Tue, Jul 1, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

I made a pretty impassioned plea a couple posts back arguing that educating consumers is the key to driving demand for wine. Sounds pie in the sky wonderful, I know. Let’s educate the world! Change, for the future! Of course the devil is in the details. First off people have to be open to being educated. [...]

Burnin’ and a Lootin’

Date: Fri, Jun 27, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

You know, I’ve been sitting here the past few weeks watching the housing market continue to go in the crapper, throwing doubt on our plans to break ground on the Winery next spring.

A Passing

Date: Sat, May 17, 2008 Winery Blogs Wine Business

Chances are good that if not for Robert Mondavi, I would not be in this business. And I didn’t even know him.
