The Big Thank You
Time To Honor the Sponsors…the folk who honor FERMENTATION by their presence.
INERTIA BEVERAGE GROUP
The pros when it comes to direct sales of wine, web management and all things wine and selling on-line. Their new blog, REthink Wine Blog, is ramped up and delivers daily insights on how to sell more wine on-line.
K&L WINE MERCHANTS
Wine retailers extraordinaire. But they too maintain a blog (K&L Uncorked). Currently it’s all about Bordeaux with emphasis on the apparently great 2005 vintage.
