The Big Debut

When it's time to drink, first impressions count. Rex and Barbara have travelled to Napa, where vineyards sometimes sell used bottles from their tasting rooms at discounted rates. When Taybi takes a bottle of wine to a party, he's not embarrassed to take the empty bottle back home with him. Besides lowering his costs and being good for the environment, taking them back ensures his bottles always match.
