Taking it to another level.

In an earlier post, I talked about MOO and their exemplary service they provided me. Today, I had another taste (indirectly) of someone going out of their way to be kick ass. Of course, it all began with Gary Vaynerchuk and Wine Library.

My parents were about to visit and I wanted to ask Gary for some hidden vineyard gems in Sonoma. He and a bunch of other internet intelligentsia were in Sonoma a couple weeks ago and I attended a party at De Loach where Daniel Burka of Pownce and Digg told me his favorite visit of their day had been to Forth Vineyard. Wondering if there were other places I shouldn’t miss, I sent Gary an email which he promptly forwarded to Wine Library’s Wine Director.

Ian’s list was extensive and sure enough, Forth made the list. I contacted a couple and everyone responded with gracious replies. Gerry Forth replied that though they don’t have their own tasting room, he’d be happy to meet my parents personally at their co-op tasting room and gave me his cell # to pass on.

About 4 hours later, I’m talking to my dad and he’s raving about what a great guy Gerry was and how interesting his whole story is.

So, a public shout out and thank you to everyone who helped; you have an advocate for life.
