Every once in a while an opportunity comes along that is quite special, the people are nice and easy to work with, the product is outstanding and yes, they pay on time.

Living in the Charlottesville, VA area, in the heart of the Virginia wine country, I had two special clients. I encourage you to try their products. The assignments were easy, because the products were so special:


The Inn at Meander Plantation – a meticulously restored 1776 plantation house sit majestically on 80 acres in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Yes, Washington and Jefferson slept there, although the food now is simply glorious. The restorations took time and money so the assignment was to boost mid-week business. A few visits from Washington, DC based food and travel writers did the trick. Problem solved. I encourage you to visit:







Jefferson Vineyards – Great history and great wine, but sometimes it is hard to differentiate your product among so many competitors, to separate the good stuff from what is served to the tourists in the tasting houses that dot Charlottesville. This is where Jefferson planted the smuggled grape vines that arrived in the new America in a diplomatic pouch from France and where he replanted the vineyard after the Hessians used it for steeplechases during the War of 1812. A few award winning bottles strategically placed went a very long way, sales soared.
