But if you can suspend your envy for two hours, from 5 to 7 p.m., Chia will personally introduce you to his superior vintages. Youll also get to purchase bottles at special sale prices and pluck juicy tidbits of wine knowledge straight from Chias brain. And somehow the Viceroy has made this event entirely free with a reservation in advance. I make wine with the same passion with which I paint it is devotion, a sacrifice, that ultimately brings the greatest reward, Chia says. OK, now youre just rubbing it in, buddy.
