  • GdP, Jamie Wolff and I went up to Menaggio on our last day in Italy a couple years back.

  • Yeah but it's tough. He said edge of the rust belt - not sure where exactly that is but  you don't have to go very far into New Jersey or Ohio to realize that the wines available in NYC and San Francisco aren't the norm.One of the problems is that people buy by brand and if not that, by variety.
