I received the following e-mail query:
We've recently purchased land in Knights Valley and need to sell this year's crop. I would very much appreciate any advice on how best to do this, as I am new to the wine business. We have contacted two of the larger brokerages: Ciatti and Turrentine, as well as other large local wineries. We have 25 acres of Cabernet, 12 of Chardonnay and 5 [of] Sauvignon Blanc, all of very high quality.
Any of my readers care to offer this person the benefit of their experience?
