Mascarello, then took picture of the group with a sign that said "no barriques, no Bush" and sent to him (or at least his daughter, to share with him). Ok, so we're liberals.
But my main reason for posting was Paul B.'s CONSTANT references to Hubert de Montille as some kind of god on earth after his appearance in Mondovino. I'm a guy who likes traditional wines. I've enjoyed some de Montille wines. But this constant deification of Hubert de Montille is a bit much. Paul, you might want to do a search on Google of de Montille and say 9/11, twin towers, or the like. M. de Montille is rather famous for his anti-Americanism, and made a very public statement to Pierre Rovani in a restaurant revelling in the events of 9/11/01. I'm probably more left wing than 95% of the readers of this site, and can readily cite failures/mistakes/travesties of American foreign policy. But as a person who cried while looking at those clouds of smoke a bit to the south it sticks in my craw to have Hubert de Montille be held up as an example- of anything.
