I would like to stress once again that I did not accuse Jay Miller of taking money for visits or tasting wines for The Wine Advocate. Indeed the only concrete suggestion that this might be the case came from Pancho Campo himself in the email sent from Tuscany on 3rd June 2011 and Campo is hardly a reliable witness:
'Private visits off the set agenda, as this would be, rarely take place, and not for a price below 40,000 euros. The fact that Jay has agreed to stay 2 days more, and for half the usual price, is a miracle and an opportunity that Madrid will find it difficult to have again.'
Neal Martin has commented on erobert:
I'm also very grateful for all the support I have received, especially after the possibility of legal action was raised.
