When you are looking to get the most out of your experience at a retailer, restaurant, or with your server

, there is one key thing that you can do to make your wine life a little more fulfilled.  Ultimately, your experience is going to be determined by you…and how much you talk.  If you open up candid discussions with your retailers, servers, restaurateurs, you can give them feedback and they can discover what their customers want.   These are people that have embraced the wine life and hopefully love what they are doing.  When you open up and talk to your retailers and servers, you can learn a lot and form great relationships with those that can help you with the important stuff, your wine education.
