By the power of Greyskull! I HAVE THE POWER! Today I'm in wine heaven as greater responsibility of our range of wines has been passed to myself following the full time departure of our current product manager. Whilst it is sad news indeed to be losing a colleague and friend from The Cellar Door the opportunity to be in control of the wine inventory is far and away more exciting than online marketing. Would you rather spend all day tagging and blogging or swirling and spitting? Don't even answer it!
While it's certainly exciting to be charged with increasing and improving our range of wines it is also mind boggling. The sheer range of Italian wines, with their 300 appellations and 10,000's producers makes this new role exceptionally challenging. I know it should be She-ra to the left but she's lame!
As I've mentioned a few times, I am moving to London at the end of September and will begin my rounds of the Restaurants, Hotels and wine bars and begin to promote our company outside of Italy. I'm asking for your help! Of course, I've been to Arnaldo Caprai and made my mind up to get this fantastic producer on the site ASAP. Personal involvement over the year with Vie de Romans, Feudi di San Gregorio, Racemi Primitivo, Inami and Viviani put them top of my list and no Italian wine website should be without Banfi, Fontodi and Frescobaldi even if their wines don't do it for me, they're popular.
Then there are the restaurants who require a completely different selection of wines. Always looking for the next exciting producer or appellation en vogue and with the ability to mark it up in an obscene way. Meeeeeeep!

Give the people what they want! What do you want? What Italian wine do you drink most often? What Italian wine do you find hard to source? Which Italian wine do you think no self respecting wine website should be without?
I am asking you to do my job for me? Of course. I'm busy. Ta. xxx
