Nothing good lasts forever, but a 13-year run is pretty good these days.
We are reluctantly saying au revoir to my good friend and wine columnist Robert Kennedy, who is positioning himself towards an impending retirement and moving part-time to Kiawah Island to enjoy life.
A very successful businessman in SJ, Bob is the owner of The Kennedy Companies in Mt. Laurel. But his passion is wine.
Early on, he approached me about a “different” kind of wine column. He didn’t necessarily
want to judge any particular wines and review them, but rather talk about wines in the abstract.
Ice wines, regional wines and the challenges facing small local wineries, different varietals and what they mean when the process is complete and hits the palate were all subjects that Bob wrote so eloquently about. And he did it without compensation.
Friends like that are hard to come by these days.
So I wanted to publicly thank my loyal associate, and wish him well as he splits his days between SC and NJ.
And of course, try to wriggle my way into a tee time at Kiawah Island Ocean Course!
Thank you, Bob.
