March-April 2007I admit that I tend to be a little extreme in my fondness for wine and golf. After all, I grew up as a competitive junior golfer in Southern California and went on to write Sideways, the novel (which later became the movie) that set the wine industry on its ear. But it seems to me that almost all sophisticated golfers also possess a taste for fine wine. Every self-respecting (and aren’t they all?) private club and luxury resort has a high-quality wine cellar and a demanding, knowledgeable clientele. Just look at the number of golf stars whose business tentacles stretch into the world of wine. Playing beautiful courses, hitting great shots and celebrating with friends over a glass of great wine: That’s just about as good as it gets.
