In Massachusetts we sometimes do this silly thing where we encourage people to delay buying stuff until a special weekend where no taxes are collected. In 2010 it's the weekend of August 14th and 15th and the tax relief applies on most items less than $2,500. Last year we didn't have such a holiday and since the 6.25% tax on wine is new within the last year this is the first time tax relief will apply to alcohol. More here from the Providence Journal and official word from the MA Citizen Information Service.
Concurrent with this Upper Falls Liquors in Newton, MA is offering 25% off 6 or more non-sale bottles of wine.
Check 'em out:

This coming November we'll have a choice as voters whether to repeal the alcohol tax at the point of purchase.
I don't have a lot of specifics at this point, but I'm hearing whispers of sales at other Massachusetts wine retailers as well.
Question of the Day: What wines at Upper Falls do you recommend? Any other sales you're hearing about?
