We send this in our e-mail hot list in November of each year…it never gets old!

We would like to start with our heartfelt condolences to all of you assistants, secretaries and go-fers out there whose boss is about to plop down the year end issue of an (overly!) influential wine rag with their Top 100 Wines of the Year and tell you that your continued employment depends on finding him a case each of the top five or ten listed. Do not bother trying to tell him that the list is a compendium of wines highly reviewed throughout the year and nearly all are now either sold out or being flipped at 300% mark-up. He will just do his best rendition of Kevin Spacey as the evil studio exec in Swimming with Sharks and tell you: “you are nothing, you do not think, you exist to make my thoughts into actions, find it or you are fired!“. We’ve been touting lawyer customers for years on this being a rich vein for a class action suit for harrassment….and, no, we do not have any of the wines either. But we DO have new, great stuff arriving daily…
