The List of 30

Recently I was asked this question by someone.
What are the 30 products that you can't live without. Or the 30 products you would want to sell if you had your choice.
I've never been asked that before. Sure I've wasted many a moment dwelling on the wines and spirits that I love but I've never actually taken to my keyboard and compiled them into a list. So here it is. In no particular order.
Patricia Green Cellars Ana Vineyard Pinot Noir
Carpano Antica Vermouth Rouge
Corsair Artisan Distillery Gin
Casanova di Neri Rosso di Neri
Vilmart & Cie Brut Premier Cru Coeur de Cuvee
Argyle Winery Brut
Cooper Mountain Vineyards Pinot Gris
Clefs Legats Cotes du Rhone
Ciacci Piccolomini Brunello di Montalcino
Tenuta Delle Terre Nere Calderara Sottana Etna Rosso
Fernet Branca
Clear Creek Distillery Grappa of Pinot Noir
Vietti Roero Arneis
Sleight of Hand Cellars Stoney Vines Vineyard Grenache
Elk Cove Vineyards La Boheme Vineyard Pinot Noir
Prichard’s Distillery Tennessee Whiskey
Clos Rougeard Saumur-Champigny
Champagne Chartogne Taillet Cuvee Sainte Anne
Clear Creek Distillery Oregon Brandy
Fernet Branca
Cooper Mountain Vineyards Mountain Terroir Pinot Noir
Flor de Caña 7 year old Rum
Cocchi Americano Aperitivo
Gonzalez Byass Viña AB Amontillado Seco
Unti Vineyards Rosé
Black Maple Hill Small Batch Bourbon
Dolin Rouge Vermouth
Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Noir Estate
Stadt Krems Grüner Veltliner
I really put myself through the ringer on this one because I've had many fabulous spirits and wines that I truly adore. I'm sure that if I didn't force myself to stop editing the list I would never finish it.
