We remain very aware that with our narrow focus on wines, the wider view of the winemakers, their individual stories, and the changing society they live and work in often receives little attention, and this series provides us with an opportunity to enrich the context for appreciating individual wines. So, we plan to continue with the series of winemaker interviews by Dion Lenting for as long as we can provide a new perspective on the winemakers and the regions in which they live.For this issue, Dion interviewed Tim Persson, the CEO of the Hess Collection of Napa Valley. Tim grew up on a farm in Southern Africa, and was a corporate lawyer in New York and London, before he married into the Hess family, shifted to California, and took on the role of CEO of the Hess Collection 6 years ago. Under his dynamic stewardship, he has renewed Hessʼs focus on producing premium quality wines from the estateʼs winery in Napa Valley.Long before he founded Village Cellars, Richard Cohen was an engineer. More recently, he has combined these roots and wine interests in the challenge of nding a better way to handle wine glasses, which culminated in “Glazmataz.” What started a quick drawing of an idea for a single glass rack about three years ago, took on a life of its own, with the nal prototype completed late last year, and the rack going into production this month. Based on Richardʼs belief that “technology should enrich life,” Glazmataz was created to provide a new way to clean, carry and store crystal wine glasses more easily. Our Glazmataz story and a free oer to become a Glazmataz tester are on pages 8-9. We hope you take time to ll in the questionnaire and try Glazmataz for yourself.We are also considering hosting a Glazmataz booth at “Wine & Gourmet Japan 2018” which will be held in April, so that we can provide hands-on demonstrations of the advantages of Glazmataz, which are hard to simply describe by words alone. We will update you with information on the booth, as well as the visits of several winemakers from the around the world during 2018, closer to the date.We will continue to work to oer you attractive wines and insightful stories. We look forward to your continued interest and support.Village Cellars-2-
