“The really nice thing about the best wineries,“…is that they’re like the best chefs. They really don’t have secrets. It always bugs me when I hear someone ask a chef, how did you make this sauce? And he says “That’s a secret.’ Those are the small individuals with little knowledge and small talent, because they’re afraid they won’t be able to stay ahead of their competitors. the real talents are happy to share all they know, because they know that next year they’ll be creating something new and even better. They’re teachers.”
