we are in fact very serious. My partner is a sommelier, and I have some pretty solid wine knowledge myself (approx. 5 years in the business and a CPA). We understand the market quite well (or at least think we do), and know that most consumers don't know their chardonnarys from their cote du rhones, to whatever, it will be educational as well as fun. We hope to see you there, opening (hopefully in three months, very latest the first of the year).

if you're sincere in your posts, I wish you all the luck in the world. Being less than completely knowledgeable about every wine produced, I would love to enter an establishment knowing that the person inside knows more than me about a label I have never seen. I went into a shop today and the shopkeeper did not know what was on his shelves...he read the label of a particular bottle I was looking at as if he could glean something off of it that I couldn't. He had no clue what he had.
Remember, the majority of the wine buying public is not as "well-rounded and knowledgeable" as all of those who post here. You will do the public a great service to expose me and the rest of us to new wines. Thanks.
