I met Giuseppe Sesti of sestiwine.com a few years ago and he asked me which was more important wine or food and I said they are so happily married why contemplate divorcing them? Giuseppe and I became friends in that instant and that sums up my view on wine; I can't contemplate it without its partner food.
