Spring Quinta Quarterly

Friday, September 01, 2017

Have you ever been made to feel silly by a wine snob? It pains me to see the effects of this in cellar door where people dismiss their instincts and say “oh I don’t know much about wine, just pour me your best”, because what I think is our best might not be to your taste.
