Weekend Update: Three Things

Friday, April 23, 2010

Three things I'd like to mention for this weekend:

  1. 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.
  2. Typo in yesterday's blog entry about the Blue Ginger/Mulderbosch wine dinner.  The correct date is Tuesday May 4th.
  3. 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.
Oh, and one late-breaking piece I thought was hilarious from Dr. Vino- an interview with Bobby Parkerchuk.
    Question of the Day: Any weekend value plays or wine events you'd like to mention?
