Dustin Wilson MS _@dustinwilsonms A. @MorganWHarris Now you! It's a bit much I think. It's about work put in, not time in press/on camera. Guests first! #SommChat

Morgan W. Harris _@MorganWHarris @dustinwilsonms Right! Thinking about the disconnect between sommelier's traditional role as seamless part service + "celebrity". #SommChat

Dustin Wilson MS _@dustinwilsonms A. @MorganWHarris Yes. Focus #1 should be guests and your program. Not getting famous. #SommChat
