Bitches

I have, of recent times, had cause to have dealings with two different women involved at executive level in the wine industry. One is employed by a retail liquor chain based in Auckland; the other a manager of an off-shore liquor outlet in the South Pacific. The parallel outcomes have been disappointing, to say the least.

The Auckland connection repeatedly failed to acknowledge or even reply to my emails. She was invariably away from her office – an administrative email message would be transmitted to say that a response would be made upon her return. It never happened! The other off-shore party was just as bad. Initially she was responsive to sourcing our Glasnevin range of wines, subject to her receiving samples and tasting the wines with her wine club group.Samples were promptly dispatched through an International courier at our cost, without any acknowledgement at her end. Follow-up emails inquiring how the wines had shown at the tasting have never been replied to.

In both instances, the woman concerned has shown a complete lack of courtesy and common decency. I know that the wine industry can be ‘ rough and tough ‘ at times, but there is no place for this sort of spiteful behaviour. They have both shown a complete lack of professionalism: they have acted shabbily!

Cheers!
