Thomas Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson, regarded as America's first true wine expert, had specific thoughts about buying wine. This one comes from one of his letters, a copy of which was found by historians working at his Virginia home at Monticello:

"Don't go to the middleman. Go straight to the manufacturer. He will always give you the right product.

"The middleman is going to take advantage of you."
