He also states he has "never drunk a glass of alcohol or coffee". I think he will put in a golf course. She already has a 9 hole golf course on the property. I just hope that they put in enough room for people to taste the wine. It was far too small a facility for all the hype she paid for and not a great spot to taste wine due to poor management and setup.

She is "vp of operations" and he is "part time accounting something or other"
They are currently using the son of one of the top local wine consultant / winemakers to finish the bottling right now and if Mr. T's son is a competant manager he will keep him but I'm afraid they will continue the practice of bringing over winemakers from France. Problem is she is difficult to deal with so they all uusally leave after a year or two or she would fire them. The past ones are doing great here making wine away from her. But the French don't always understand that the grapes need to be grown differently here than back in Europe.
On a positive note - the vineyards are in great shape. Let's hope he does not give her any control but is just letting her save face. I can't see him allowing money to be thrown away like she did. And let's hope he pays his bills. She left many local small businesses high and dry never paying her bills which hurts as we all know as small businesses. That's why few feel sorry for her here.

Chris just got a call from a reporter. They wanted to come out and get some dirt on Trump Vineyards. They are only interested in negative information. Figures. He took a pass.
