Wine: Distribution laws more than a little ridiculous
I had a wonderful wine last weekend. Maybe you've had it, but I'm guessing you haven't. Not because you don't have impeccable taste, an open spirit or fat wallet. Not because it's an older vintage cellared for years, not even because it's made in such tiny quantities that you have to be on some velvet-rope mailing list to get a bottle.
