Yeah, I’m writing this from a perspective of many years now. Yeah, there have been many victories along the way. And yeah, I’m not in this alone. It just seems like a golden moment, when wine, and Italian wine, is being embraced by America, and not just because it’s cheap or we’re in a red-checkered tablecloth mamma-papa trattoria. We’ve hit the vein.

So while the world burns – and it is burning fast and furious – I’m going to continue to skirmish, whether it is to bring Lambrusco to a pizzeria or to make sure all the Ribollas in that little retail shop by my house are all set together, so folks can find them and buy them and come back for them. Because twenty or thirty years from now, I know Americans will be ever so much more in love with Italian wine.
I can’t wait to see what happen this coming week in Indiana – and I’m talking to you in Indianapolis, Ft. Wayne, Elkhart and Merrillville (and let’s throw Chicago in there for luck) – I’m coming for you – we need to talk. I’m going to make you a deal you can’t refuse. And you’re gonna love it. I know that now.
