Re: Who bottles salmanazars or balthazars in Napa/Sonoma/Norcal?

So you're giving your soon-to-be-former coworker a white elephant? [pwn.gif] How about a nice 3 bottle lot, 6 bottle lot, or magnum of their favorite Napa wine in it's wooden presentation box? How often will they have occasion to drink a 9L or 12L bottle? [scratch.gif] How are they going to pour it?
