Wine Curation

Need a special bottle of wine but can’t locate it?  Maybe a birthday or anniversary vintage? Perhaps a bottle from a vacation that doesn’t seem to be imported?  Whatever the reason or occasion, I can assist in locating that elusive bottle for a nominal professional fee. Let me do the legwork and you’ll enjoy the (liquid) fruits of my labor.  Email me for details at:
