Unsophistication can ruin the deal! All that work to "seal" the deal and it all come down to a simple, last moment, tie-up loose ends, type dinner meetings with your valuable client. And then it happens, your client asks you to do the honors and pick the wine that you think is appropriate. What does that mean "appropriate"? You're a beer and shooter guy, what do you know about pairing the right wine "that's appropriate" for your client's meal? What's that rule again, white wine with white meat and red wine with red meat, oh no, I ordered the steak, so that's a red wine, but he ordered the roasted pork loin! What is pork anyway, is it red or is it like the commercials say, "it's the new white meat"? If you've been pairing food and wine for years, this request is a piece of cake. But as you can see, most people have no idea what to do in this situation. Now, your client might not fire you on the spot, but as all great salespeople know, relationships build client sales and long term relationships build successful companies. So by being in rapport, having a common interest, is the fastest and easiest way to continually build and reconnect those important client relationships. After all, with the increased interest in unique foods and cuisine from around the world, choosing the right or appropriate accompaniment does say a lot about who you are and are your world views broad enough to contribute to a growing, world economy?
