Wine or Whine? Tell Us Soon, Supremes

I follow the wine industry for two reasons: one because my son works in it - but is now on his way to the University of Iowa College of Law (my alma mater) and will likely return to it. The other because I like wine. Jack London merlot to be specific. Plus an occasional Chianti Classico Riserva.

But I digress.

One of the more frustrating things is trying to buy wine and have it shipped to you interstate. It's nothing short of a nightmare.

This coming Thursday, the United States Supreme Court will consider whether to unravel the mess. Stay tuned, and look for more on these two cases: Granholm v. Heald and a companion case, Michigan Beer & Wine Wholesalers Association v. Heald.

Then we'll decide whether to order that perfect case of wine, or whether to order some cheese with that whine.
