Harold Evensky: A Wine Shop Hangover

In the 1970s, I got carried away with my hobby and opened a wine shop, way before the market was ready. As my wife, Deena Katz, says, it was the era of the three-drink lunch. Everyone wanted martinis and bourbon, not wine. I hung in there for a few years, but it was akin to the Titanic and the iceberg.
