What Will Dick Parsons Do After Time Warner?


What is it about media moguls and their rich, empurpled elixirs? Sumner Redstone has his acai; Dick Parsons, counting down to the end of his tenure at Time Warner, has his Brunello di Montalcino Riserva. So what is Parsons going to be doing with his time when he hands over the reins of Time Warner to Jeff Bewkes, effective January 1, 2008? According to Wine News, Parsons will be spending some of his time in Italy with his wines:

”Tuscany is one of the most beautiful spots in the world: ask anyone where they would like to live and 90% of them will answer Tuscany. When I arrived here I began looking for an estate to buy in Lucca, then I moved to Florence and the Chianti, arriving finally in Montalcino. And, here, I finally found what I was looking for.”
