montesquieu wine exchange

A "First" for me....I got a call today from a telemarketer regarding buying wine from montesquieu. I'd never heard of the company before, and her approach...high pressure, deflecting questions back to the script, and general fast talk made me a bit suspicious. When I asked her how she had gotten my name, she indicated that "she had been referred to me". I asked by whom and she said "we work with the twin cities wine experience". Odd, because i've never actually gone to the event.

Anyways, the sales pitch was that they were brokers of small boutique wineries. They worked..... "directly with winemakers. You know, like harlan, who want to make other wines but can't do it under their normal labels of course" (lol)

I wasnt sure if they were a negociant or if they did marketing for boutique wineries, but the whole pitch smelled funny. Their website listed hundreds of labels, but I wasn't familiar with any of them. So I did a google search and the only comments that i found were interesting...
