Customer Spotlight: Cork Hoarder

It started with Instagram. Back in 2011, Bryan Garcia posted pictures of bottles of great wine, hoping to connect with other like-minded wine nerds. That went better than he could have ever hoped for.  Cork Hoarders soon became his life. This winter he launches his book “@corkhoarder.”
