Quote(s) of the Day

“If you drink a bottle of a ’61 Bordeaux every five years and somebody swipes it, you’re not going to be happy. You can’t replace it. Wine is a very personal thing.”
–Ken Chalmers, assistant manager at local SV Valley wine shop Beltramo’s, explaining why a Atherton, Ca robbery of a private house where the haul was $100,000 of premium wine,mostly Bordeaux, has locals, uh, quaking (would this be a good reason to drink up those cellars faster?)
and
“An 18-year-old girl was shot point-blank in the head and I received no calls about it.The wine theft? A gazillion. It kind of shows you where people’s values lie.”
–Local police sergeant, quoted in the same story.
