  1. A hearty congratulations to Isabelle! I’m happy to report that in response to public outcry, The Drinks Business took down the insulting initial illustration, which can best be described as a stripper silhouette posing under a wine glass. The first replacement was another silhouette of a woman—this one evidently in a nightie—but that didn’t fly with the community, either. So the article now sports a stock art shot of grapes, and while it’s not perfect, either, at least now readers might be able to focus on the article’s true content: profiles of accomplished winemakers.
