To celebrate the Supreme Court’s decision on wine shipments, Free the Grapes, a national coalition of wineries and wine lovers, is calling for all of us to raise our glasses tonight. I’m not sure what I’ll be drinking tonight, but you can bet I’ll be taking part in the toast. Get the details.
Finally…the Supreme Court has declared wine shipping prohibitions unconstitutional. This is going to be big for Long Island wineries I think. While some argue that the old laws protect small, local producers…I think a lift on this ban is going to help some of our top winemakers get their wares in front of more people…which is always a good thing. I’m busy at the day job today…but I’m sure the entire wine blogging community be writing about this in coming days and weeks.
