I'd say, then, that Ben's getting what he wanted--his dream girl (at least to make out/have sex with) and publicity for his business.
Maggie: "While she takes care of the men with the guns, why don't you sit down and I'll make you a nice, hot cup of tea?"
Pan Am stewardesses: prepared for anything!
His wine won an award( 2012) I havent seen it or tasted it. But good for him !
I don't even remember him talking much about the winery this year. I mean I don't even know what the name of his winery is But I do know what I've been reading all over the net and in the tabs. And I don't think Ben has enough fans to buy a case of wine let alone make any significant contribution to the success of the winery. I'm sure the "viewing party" probably consisted of 2-3 women getting away from their family for an evening. I can't see him making anything out of his apperance on this show except for a season on the highly acclaimed BP.
The name of Ben's winery is called Envolve Winery... they have two labels. Envolve Wines and Epilogue wines (the latter being launched last year.) Or so says its website.
Envolve Winery | Sonoma | Friendship | Organic
Hmm interesting link I am going to see if I can buy a bottle and try it. I read on another forum that its pretty good stuff( hence the award )
Just because I had a few minutes to kill, I looked up the competition in which his winery won an award. About 20 bazillion awards were given out. His was one of 13 gold medals in a specific category (sauvignon blanc from $14.99 to $19.99). There were three "Double Gold" winners and two "Best of Class" in that same category. Doesn't sound all that special to me.
I've entered crochet work in the county and state fairs. In some competitive environments, EVERY entrant wins some type of recognition. Shucks - I even won a blue ribbon. I usually don't mention that mine was the only entry in that specific category.
Here's a link, in case anyone is interested.
I just like to ty different wines. I have tried a few organic wines that won awards.I wasn't impressed. But its not bad to try new things
If he were ambitious enough, Ben could spin off his 15 minutes of fame into additional business ventures -- similar to Bethenny Frankel. But then again, since most of Bethenny's success seems to come from women who think colon cleansers and lip gloss with her logo are somehow superior to anything without her name on it, maybe not. The "skinny girl" logo is gold, for reasons I will never understand, but I imagine it has something to do with women wanting to be just like her, and that wouldn't work for Ben.
Maybe he could do a special bottling of a wine that's guaranteed to get MODELS to go skinny dipping. :-)
