Is that it for James? Seems like there are a lot of unanswered questions.

It might be neat to have a lawyer who specializes in wine law answer questions for a week.

I really love this forum. I hope you keep doing it, even if only on a limited basis. There are so many folks in the wine industry who would be fascinating to hear from, many on this BB. I realize that it must be a bit of a hassle to set these up, but it is a great idea. I would think it is also an opportunity for many to get some free exposure. Thanks.

I love these Q&As Todd. Great idea. I know there are plenty here, but I would love to talk to a winemaker similar to what WS does during harvest to expose us on the consumer side a bit more to what goes into the day by day. I know that is a real tax on their time however.

I'd love a Q&A with Jeremy Seysses (Dujac), who is already an active member on the Board.

If any of you wish to reach out to these individuals, and forward it on to me, please do.

But make sure they have the time and inclination. Asking a winemaker during harvest would be fun (for us) but I can't imagine they'd have much time to spend here. And if someone doesn't want to answer a lot of questions, or wants to toss in just 1-2 sentence answers and not engage I think it's less interesting.

Why limit it to wine? I'd like to hear from some beer makers.

It's not limited - have any suggestions?

Our own Jorge is now a beer maker, apparently!

As of right now, I just finished Theiss' book, and probably would like to ask him about his personal connections in a trendingly very impersonal business.

By the way, I've got the next two Special Guests lined up as well - it's going to be fun!

Well, the latter is a guest next week, so ask some questions - as new threads each question
