I had a football coach who used to say… “Excuses are like bellybuttons, everyone has one.” Of course I have heard many different versions of this saying over the years and essentially they all hold true. I believe in excuses if they are legitimate and my absence on my blog comes with what I would call a good excuse.

As many of you know, Washington State voters passed an initiative on last Novembers ballot which took liquor sales out of the states control and turned it over to the private sector. The new law took effect June 1, which meant that my department at the store became much bigger. Over the last three months, I have been consumed with choosing the items that have come into the store, placing the orders, setting the shelves and all the other headaches that come with starting something new. It has been both challenging and exhausting, but also exciting as I go down a new, interesting road. Things have come together nicely and the road is smoothing out as I settle in.

Now it is time for me to focus on what I love doing… Writing about wine and the things I have discovered in the wine world. I know how important it is to keep relevant content flowing on my blog and to keep things interesting. If you are still visiting my blog, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience, and I am determined to post reviews and information that is both informative and entertaining. I may have snoozed awhile on my blog because of the booze, but now I am wide awake and ready to roll. Here’s to good wine at great prices. Cheers! Stan The Wine Man

About Stan The Wine Man

I am a blue collar wine guy who has been in the biz for over twenty years. I work at a store in a tourist destination stop. I work hard at finding the best wine for the money. I love the challenge of learning my customer's palate so I can find the best wine for them, whether it is Petrus or white zinfandel. Cheers!
