It is that time again. Vicky and I will be starting our annual producer visits on Monday April 2nd. This year will be slightly different as Bill Mayer will not be able to go. We will miss his humor and expertise, but we will be in close contact (sometimes the new communications capabilities are for the best).
We will start our buying note in earnest around April 14th while in Champagne. If you love Champagne, we will be reporting on a "show" we are to attend of 12 very small producers, one of who is Raphael Bereche and he tells us we just may find one or two possible producers of like quality who may want to be imported. Who knows? We will see.
So welcome along for the ride. If nothing else, it will be a fun ride.
