Probably not too good. Doesn’t the co-branding constitute an endorsement by the critic? When the critic actually picks the wines, the endorsement raises potential conflicts of interest; when the critic does not pick the wines, which is probably the case with the NYT, then the publication has no business lending it’s credibility to the club. What’s the point, Felix?

NYT is copying Donald Trump in branding. Interesting move.. divided on whether people associate the NYT with the higher things in life or consumers will laugh. Personally, I would be more interested in ordering wines a critic picks… one that seems to mirror my tastes.
