Website, newsletter, wines of the month, emails – my office day leaves me feeling like some sort of hermit, emerging from the “cave” long enough to grab another soda or some non-nutritious nosh to further expand my waistline. I tell ya, if I was a raging claustrophobe, I’d be royally screwed.
In a way though, it’s nice to gather up all the information I ingest over the week and log it in, circulating it to our client base and anyone else crazy enough to wade through my slightly subversive prose. I just in front of my laptop in my office (which is kind of a big fuse box for the stores with a really heavy old steel desk and various scattered papers, pictures of my glory days, and various business cards from all the reps and wine folk I’ve met over the years. It’s just a receptacle for controlled chaos, really.
This month, being that it’s my birthday month, I’ll be talking about Italian wines (my favorite wines on earth), along with more Petite Sirahs (thanks to Jo Diaz of Juicy Tales for reigniting my interest in PS), and some of the new wines trickling in from around the world.
