Breakfast of Champions
This is what a wine broker's counter looks like at 8:30am.
You have to check the wines to make sure there are no flaws or corked bottles before heading out to your first meetings. Yesterday, I was in New Jersey in the morning, tasting with a big retailer where the reception was rather warm (heck, they seemed to like everything, which is nice). They ended up keeping most of the bottles you see here, which is a good sign I suppose. The rest of the day was in New York, visiting wholesalers and trying to convince them that my wines are God's gift to the thirsty masses... Fingers, toes and everything else that I could think of are crossed.
