In the “Affected by Memories” crowd there are drinkers that fondly recall trips taken to different countries which may include wine producing regions and perhaps even wineries. Most often the memories are fond as new wines are tried, geographical delights are encountered, new foods and perhaps even new friends are all made possible by wine. These memories may be a short drive or hours of airplane travel away. It is understood that the wines discovered most likely will not be available “back home” but luck may have it that wines from that region or country may be. These people may be reliving some pleasant experiences and memories but inevitably have a streak of disappointment because of the limited number of wines a retailer can carry. It may also create a layer of resentment against the retailer for stocking the “wrong wines”. These people may have a never-ending passion to discover the world of wine.
