“Everybody’s got something to hide except me and my monkey.”
— John Lennon & Paul McCartney
His name is Diego Samper. His job: certified wine explorer. Hence, the jungle, the aviators, and the monkey.

I talked to Diego and his business partner Will Bonner this week on The Wiggin Sessions. They run a filial operation out of the Andes Mountains in Argentina called the Bonner Private Wine Partnership.
I visited their cattle ranch, La Finca Gualfin, about five years ago and they toured me and my family around their operation.
The switchbacks leading up out of the jungle to the ranch are stunning. Think safari in the sky. Andes Condors. Mountain goats.
It’s a wonder they figured out how to get their wines and grapes from their high altitude vineyard to the South American coast and up to the United States.
They do good business, authentic hard work. Make it happen, so that you and I can enjoy a quality, posh product. We can learn a lot from them.
If names like Sunal Ilógico, Puramun Reserva, or Mayuco Malbec mean anything to you, then you should check out their offers.
If you want to learn the inner workings of international shipping, the entrepreneurial spirit, or the science of bringing good grapes to fruition, check out my Session with them here.

P.S. The global tokenization market size was USD $2.3 billion in 2021 and it is predicted growth is up to USD $5.6 billion by 2026. Think NFT’s but for real assets: real estate, fine art, commodities. Bonner Private Wines should get in on it. I’d buy a wine token or ten.
