Two Women on Wine: Expanding your wine horizons

When we talk with customers and others regarding the type of wines they enjoy, more often than not we hear the same varietals mentioned. If a customer tells us they like white wine, then Chardonnay is a frequent response. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Zinfandel rule in the red varietals. As wine purveyors, our goal is to guide you through the maze of wines and, more importantly, help you gain confidence in your wine exploration.

"The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard" is a cheerfully, energetically and very vulgar comedy. If you're OK with that, you may be OK with this film, which contains a lot of laughs and has studied Political Correctness only enough to make a list of groups to offend. It takes place after a failing car dealer calls in a hired gun and his team to move goods off the lot over the Fourth of July.

This was Elliot Teichberg, a young interior designer who leaves a New York City career to return home to upstate New York and help his parents bail out their failing and shabby motel.
