On a chilly early fall morning in the Napa Valley, the Most Powerful Man in the World of Wine--unseasonably attired in a short-sleeved shirt and shorts--stands next to his white rental car in the parking lot at the Meadowood Resort. There's a boyish half-smile on his lips and a small, inch-thick notebook in his left hand. At 51, his Rabelaisian love of food--and 25 years of drinking two bottles of wine a day--have added 80 pounds to his 6-foot, 1-inch frame.

Late in 1985, a customer walked into Wally's Liquor in Westwood and bought a case of Chardonnay made by Chalone Vineyard, a prestigious, Central California winery. A few days later, the customer returned 11 of the 12 bottles in the case. "He said he didn't like it," says Steve Wallace, owner of Wally's. Wallace gave him his money back. Two weeks later, the customer returned and bought a case of the same wine. Surprised--and baffled--Wallace asked him why he'd changed his mind.
