To the south, there are maniacs in Provence, there is Brad Pitt at Chteau Miraval, and there are some of the finest people on God’s earth who set up the lunch table underneath a spreading plane tree, cover it with the makings of a grand aioli and open as many bottles of ros as it takes.
But what the difference between a mentor and a sponsor?
