    I love the wine side of things. Like cigars, there is so much complexity and ritual involved. I have been making wine for about 12 years now and some of my favorites have come from Napa Valley. Shipping in the fresh grapes is pricey but the experience is well worth it.

    The 4% thing blew my mind. Makes you really respect and appreciate the product and reputation that Napa has been able to establish. Such a big impact, with little output.

      Same! I would have guessed a much higher number.
