joe dressner

My name is Joe Dressner and I'm The Wine Importer of many French, an increasing number of Italian wines and a Port. I am part of a company, Louis/Dressner Selections, which tries to find interesting and often unusual wines that express the terroir the wines come from and the talent and hard work of the winemakers. This site is my personal spot and has no relation to the company I work for.

The point of this site is unabashed self-promotion, which I have learned is the key to success in the business world. Long and hard experience has taught me that the quality of our wines is unimportant -- it is my ability to network and promote myself that matters most in the business world. Image and illusion are all that matters and our customers feel reassured to know they are buying wine from an important personality who has his own web site.

Most of this site is true, but some of it is fictional. I often forget which part is which. Everyone in the wine trade takes themselves so seriously that I am trying to bring a little perspective and humor into what should be a joyous trade. By the way, my lawyer suggested I include this paragraph.

The site is organized by chronological posts in descending order. There are several posts on each page and you can go to earlier posts by scrolling to the bottom of the page and clicking on older posts. This is a very user-friendly feature.

Coming Soon on CaptainTumorMan.COM

The new blog is almost up.

The first installment will discuss how spending the past 25 years in the vineyards calms me and gives me a sense of faith and peace while I face this crisis with a brain tumor.

The second installment will be an exposé of how my brother, Ira Dressner, sells fake medical instruments under the guise that he is a medical doctor with expertise. In fact, he sells tags, bags and mannequins in New York's garment center.

The third installment will be a wine/radiation pairing, finding the perfect wine for various intense levels of radiation treatment. Do natural wines tastes better, even though the treatment itself is thoroughly unnatural?

The fourth installment will be an exposé of my cousin Dr. Barbara Hirsch, a very important Great Neck Endocrinologist, who was raised and nurtured by my parents. Dr. Hirsch waited until my father was near death and my mother was suffering from a rare neuromuscular disorder, to write them a seven page letter denouncing them for being horrible to her for the entirety of her life! Despite my concerns, Dr. Hirsch still refuses to apologize.

Don't miss these exciting installments of:
