But I digress.
Mr. Grieco may be the most quoted person in the wine business today. At least the New York wine business. He was quoted by Eric Asimov in last week's The New York Times "Dining" section. This is when it occurred to me I had seen his name a lot over the past year. And then there he was again, in this week's "Dining" section, quoted in an article on Sherry by Florence Fabricant. That sealed the deal. Twice in the same publication in one week and a day. If this rate maintains, we'll see Paul Grieco quotes 52 times in 2009. Which wouldn't be a bad thing - his quotes are pretty good...quite "quotable".
New Year's Resolution #1? To be quoted just once in the New York Times. Or even mentioned...quotes are not even required. Eric Asimov, Florence Fabricant...can you hear me?
Maybe it would help if I actually sent out a press release.
