Neal Martin news

#1 Post by C. Mc Cart » March 14th, 2019, 7:13 am

Can someone that still uses Facebook shine any light on Neal's post earlier today? Gather it has to do with his heart, but not sure of details.
Many thanks.
Chris

That is shocking. He is a very young guy to have 4 vessel disease. Must have a heriditary predisposition to CV issues. Wish him all the best, he seems like one of the really good blokes in the wine world. I always appreciate his fairly honest takes on wines.

I wish him a speedy and uneventful recovery.

Thanks & shame to hear. Quite serious for someone of his age.

On a side note, this morning was the 1st time I've ever felt I was actually missing out not having a facebook account.
