I would've never found this great merlot unless it was featured at our local market. A great steal I might add at $7.20 per bottle!

Dear Dolores,

At coffee this AM with Diablo Vista region neighbors, there was talk of wine tastings conducted by various wineries at Bevmo Danville on Friday afternoon and Saturday midday. In addition to the broad selection of wines and prices, neighbors noted that such tastings are wonderful opportunities to network. Sarah noted she had not only found wines for her parties but swapped recipes with other attendees. Ken claims that he created clients for his business and a job opportunity for his daughter by networking at these events.

In these challenging economic times, some wine and new contacts might be attractive to your readers.
