Salut Luc!
J'attends toujours ta visite au Restaurant at Wente Vineyards. We are doing some fabulous things. This week, we were serving wine straight out of the barrel with a $39 menu engineered around our newly released Small Lot Grenache 2008! Awesome feedback from our guests! I hope to see you before the end of February and again in May for the next quarterly Barrel Week! How are things for you and the family? Is your son getting better at farming oysters?! Take care!

Regarding your question in the PR forum, the quickest and simplest way to spread your news online is to write search friendly content (press release, article, background) and release over a wire service that targets online placements. You may have a dBusiness in your town which is free to post. For paid services, I like Marketwire. Of course, you can have a free trial on Food4Media to reach food journalists.

Load up on images, video and anything else that tells your story. Also run any content through Press Release Grader (Google it to find). It really helps optimize your news for online. Comment on relevant blogs, email press releases to industry trades.

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Hi Luc,
I'm not a food vendor, but a resource for people looking for the best New York Street Food. My website is and the right side has listings of Vendy Award winners, food trucks and food carts. You can also use the map to look by location, but for the food trucks, which move every day, you should use the twitter listing on my page.

Hi Luc - I have been focused on the restaurant industry for 15+ years, but all from the capital financing and strategic side as an investment banker. How about you?
