“When you hear the word wine, I hope it conjures up happy memories-maybe of a wonderful visit tot he wine country, or of a great meal when the food and drink perfectly complemented each other; or maybe it was just a nice bottle of wine witha very special friend at picnic”

-Meyer, Justin (Winegrower/Silver Oak Cellars/California)"Plain talk about fine wine"
