I have to share some distressing news with you. Will you join me in sending your most earnest get-well-soon vibes to Joe Dressner, wine importer extraordinare, who recently discovered that he has a brain tumor. Joe, as most of you know, has spent the past 20 years paving the natural wine road from France to America. His wines are wonderful, and are treated with minimal sulfur. Some say Joe's personality could use a little sulfur treatment, just to kill unwanted microbes. I disagree - I think he just gets frustrated with how backwards and ridiculous everything can be. In any case, he's not really sure yet how serious this is, but he's handling it so far as you would expect - with humor, and dark humor at that. I want to take this moment to send my best wishes to you Joe for a comfortable and speedy recovery.
