Cartoonist Doug Pike pours a little humor with his wine. Coauthor of a book of wine cartoons (with a foreword by legendary wine critic Robert M. Parker Jr.), Pike effectively takes any pretense out of wine drinking by illustrating miniature stories we can all relate to. Remember, when it comes to an in-house cartoon sommelier, sometimes you’ll have to settle for whoever’s available to talk wine. Look for more cartoons in the weeks to come.
