    Ms. Preet,
    I’ m writing about Thomas Jefferson as wine connoisseur and gourmet. Would love to talk with you. My email: bacchuspr@aol.com, or cell: 410-960-1002. Or if you’ll email me that would be perfect. I’m the author of Passions: The Wines and Travels of Thomas Jefferson. Thanks,
    Jim Gabler
