Thank you Brian Stack!!
Sorry for the hastily written email, but this is very important...the wayyou are buying wine currently is at risk, and you are not even aware!Congress, backed by the Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) arelooking to pass laws that will not allow you to purchase wines fromretailers outside of your home state. You do not even realize what is goingon in your own backyard, but it is very bad.Organizations like Specialty Wine Retailers Association (SWRA) and Free theGrapes need your help. I urge you to forward this email on to all of yourwine loving friends.I urge all of you to write to your senators, congressmen and women, attorneygenerals, etc etc and let them know that you are concerned that you arebeing stripped of your "wine buying rights."Craig Wolf has talked in the past about how the WSWA supports the will ofthe people. Certainly it is not you or I whom he refers to, but rather richimporters and distributors looking to take wine laws back to nearprohibitionist levels.Please see the following links. I will provide more information as itbecomes available. My mailist list is small, so I urge you to forward thisto other wine retailers that you do business with, as well as friends. It istime to tell lawmakers and organizations like the WSWA that they are notspeaking for the will of the people, and never have!http://www.winebusiness.com/news/?go=getArticlehttp://www.winespectator.com/webfeature/show?id=42526
"The whole idea [behind the bill] is to make it prohibitively difficult for wineries and consumers to challenge discriminatory and irrational laws that have little or nothing to do with the protection of the public," said Kirkland & Ellis attorney Tracy Genesen, who has been the lead attorney on many direct-shipping lawsuits that have resulted in state alcohol laws being overturned.

Wow. Consider me kicked to the curb. You must be the local wine bully. I realized over the holidays I spend WAY too much money on wine - for gifts and for myself - because I am intimidated walking into a place of business where I know so little about the products. So I go for names I recognize (not Gallo) and usually drop too much coin. Trying to educate myself a little and I came across that video that just tickled me. Apparently I didn't tickle you. Oh - I flunked french in high school and spanish in college, so some of your response was lost on me. Anyway, thanks for making me feel like one of the gang at WiredJC. Bye bye wired winos.
