Three things I'd like to mention for this weekend:
- The other day as we were driving to Wine Riot I saw a billboard off the Mass Pike that caught my attention. It advertised the 2011 Hyundai Sonata which features 200hp, 35mpg, and costs less than $20k. With such great specs, I wondered why anyone would drive another car. There are some things we can learn about stocking a wine cellar from this- I wrote a piece on the subject on Corkd- I'd love it if you had a look.
- Typo in yesterday's blog entry about the Blue Ginger/Mulderbosch wine dinner. The correct date is Tuesday May 4th.
- By now you've probably heard of HR5034 which threatens direct shipment of wine to all states. Wine Spectator had a nice write-up on the topic. And here's a more recent update from Wines & Vines.
If you'd like to voice your opposition of this legislation, which would almost certainly eliminate the possibility of direct shipping in most states especially Massachusetts click here to send a fax or E-mail to your state representatives. I did it- it takes less than a minute and it can help.
