A Drunken Job?
When many people hear that certain folks are in the wine business, they automatically think their life is but a party and they’re loaded all the time. There’s no question that the business is more lifestyle than job and wine folk are certainly lots of fun and enjoy themselves, but drunk all the time? Absolutely not! It’s a business after all, but most consumers only see the hedonistic side of it. Anyone in the business who abuses alcohol tends to not last in it very long. They are either forced out through their own medical problems resulting from over use, from making spectacles of themselves, or ultimately through lack of business because of it. If anything, being in the wine biz, gives one a better appreciation of its potential problems.
