If it seems like small wine businesses are getting crowded out of a vibrant US wine market by retail chains, entrenched distributors, and established brands, there's good news for little guys. There's a reason why these massive companies spend a fortune acting "small." In the new, wired realm of marketing and customer relations, the qualities that make small businesses distinctive, like personalized service, deep product knowledge and authentic interest, matter more than ever.
