    Tim Fenton's a man after my own heart! I love telling little stories about wines I sell...about my trip to that vineyard, how a celebrity had a runner purchase a particular wine from me, it helps make wine less daunting and more personalized! That book's going on my wish list!!!

  • You know what's really good?

    Giving someone a book on, for example, port - and also giving them the wine it describes!

    Nothing like drinking a wine while you're reading about it.

    (Or am I simply posting my own Xmas wishlist...? Is that you, Mrs K?)
