While you lucky people in CA have been able to have your favorite boutique wine shipped directly to your home, we poor drunks in states like Maryland and Minnesota have had to trudge down to the local wine shop to get our spirits. In many cases, we couldn't get a vintage from a small winery that didn't have a huge marketing deal with a national distributor.
I guess all that has changed now. Which is great! I've done some of my best creative CF work a little tipsy. Well, at least I think I have until it wears off and I look at the code again. (Doh!)
Generally good news for the small vineyards and adventurous consumers with discriminating palettes
