Did you ever try to order a NYS Wine in a local restaurant?

We spent good money to send a group out of state to tout local tourism and products, when the money might just as well been spent touting New York State wines to our local establishments.

California wines and foreign wines have their place, but shouldn't NY wines be right up there with the rest?

Regarding wine in the grocery store:

Who in their right mind would think that this was a good idea? Are the Powers That Be just not going to be happy until they put EVERY last Mom and Pop out of business? This proposal will KILL the small liquor retailer, more people will be unemployed, and there will be even MORE empty commercial real estate! Just what NYS needs.

Currently, liquor stores are only allowed to sell two things....wine and liquor. Why not pass a law that permits the liquor stores to sell food items instead?? That solution would most likely (gasp!) CREATE a few jobs for some folks (a fun job even), and maybe even crank up some much needed tax revenue. Imagine being able to pick up wine AND cheese AND fruit in one stop! Or even a fabulous gift basket for your wine enthusiast friend at holiday or birthday time!

I hope that the Powers That Be sit down with a cheese trolley and a robust red wine and think about the ramifications of what they are proposing!
