The next day I was a one man band having to invoice the wine, manually process credit card payments, order in the wine, despatch it and do the banking, that’s how good business’s start.

  • Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy.

  • From the "Even a blind squirrel finds a nut now and then" file come my tasting notes from a LIOCO Lunch I was invited to today at Healdsburg SHED. Being a local has its advantages. You just have to take them when they come around.   I arrived at the Café and was promptly greeted by Hollie Schulze and Jennifer Derrick, both formerly of Copain. Wh... Read More

  • Hi, I am an accidental wine enthusiast. As part of a major remodeling project including our family room I revived my interest and enjoyment of wine. Our family room was redone using dark hickory planking and the room has a short wall next to our fireplace. This wall has always presented a challenge to make use of the space. I researched and sear... Read More
