JUST WINE TALK: NEW ARKANSAS DISTRIBUTOR DOING IT RIGHT

Thursday, 5/31, Little Rock, AR
I checked my e-mail when I got home tonight and was surprised to see a message from Lee Edwards, one of the new, independent distributors in Arkansas. He's trying to bring some new, hard-to-find wines into the market. I've tried one, the 2005 Casamatta Italian White blend, and gave it 4 Corkscrews during my review. I'm anxious to try some of the other wines he's sourcing and review them as well. If the other wines he's decided to bring in are as good as the Casamatta, and I have no doubt that they are, he should be successful in his venture. One of his main challenges, as I see it, will be educating the retailers and customers and getting them to at least try something different. If he can cross that hurdle, he'll be on his way. I plan on attempting an interview with him regarding the wines he's sourcing, and will post that at a later date. If you've got a little time check out his website, Lee Edwards Distributing , and read about his philosophy. He's got a very unique vision, is very choosy in who he partners with and is passionate about wine! I'll post reviews of some of these new and interesting wines as I get a chance to try them. Sit Long, Talk Much, Laugh Often, Drink Wine!
