Dustin Lancaster has a signature move behind a bar. Well…actually, he has several, but this particular move sets him apart. It’s the way he helps you and me choose the perfect glass of wine. And by “perfect,” I mean perfect for you.
The way it works is this: you’ll likely be engaged in conversation within moments of your arrival at his bar. If you know what you want, the conversation continues and the wine flows. But, if you appear to have a question mark above your head, you’re in luck...you’ll get the signature “move.”
A subtle tilt of the head, a surmising gaze, and then delivered in a heartfelt, inquisitive tone, you’ll hear: “choose an adjective.” It’s simple, effortless…and your answer usually leads to exactly what you were looking for in your glass.
That said, when considering what to share about Dustin with cyberspace, “choosing adjectives” seemed a fitting approach. If you asked his closest friends and colleagues, they’d say, “gracious,” “genuine,” “infectious,” “magnetic” and “incredibly knowledgeable” (the adverb, a well-deserved addition).
The good news for Covell patrons is if those who hardly know Dustin were asked the same question, they’d come up with the very same adjectives. What’s even better news for Covell patrons is that his knowledge isn’t just about the wine. It’s also about…well…everything else.
