A quick and fun session of 10 Questions, answered within 10 minutes, most time, with some of the most interesting personalities related to wine around me. It is more than what they have and wish for, but a snap-shot glimpse of who they are.
When I told Mr. Lee that I would like to ask him 10 quick questions about wine for my blog, he said he will answer them, but humbly requested not to have his name published. Interestingly I was not surprised by his request. Mr. Lee and his wife have always been a generous man, never hesitated on their friendship, advises, and of course their brilliant wine collection. Down to earth and humble, and absolutely adventurous.
