I am an open-minded taster. My motto is to try all types of wine. However,
I am also mindful of wasting time, mine and other people's, so if I get a request for an appointment to taste wine that I know won't fit in at
The Wine House, I'll decline the offer.
A vendor who I like to do business with because he is a one-man operation who has the same enthusiasm for wine as I do,
sent me a appointment request for a winery from Lebanon. I was intrigued, but it was a busy time, and for what ever reason, I forgot to respond.
This vendor did not take "no", or more like a non-response, as an answer and called me on the phone to persuade me to taste the wine.
I said "yes" as I had time in the day to do so.
That is how I met Naji Boutros of Chateau Belle-Vue
