there is nothing to prepare you for wine. let it happen to you. things will most likely be fine. in fact, combine wine and marijuana, and sit someone in front of you, someone you’re not sure if you respect, and do your best to learn about them. granted, they are also on wine and marijuana. If so, ask them what is more important to them than money. if the list is long, they are most likely worthy company. either way, get close to them. having money and knowing people who have money are almost the same thing.
best of luck.
