The best wines November 5, 2007

Matt and I were in the liquor store next to Trader Joe’s over the weekend and were so excited to see two of our favorite brands of wines on their shelves.  As you may know, it is very difficult to get wine from other states into the Pennsylvania liquor stores because the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) is so strict.

The wines we saw were two types of Airlie that Matt’s company, Star Cellars, imports from Oregon, and two of Dr. Konstantin Frank‘s wines from New York State:

The wines circled on the top are Dr. Frank’s and the wines circled on the bottom are the Airlie wines.  (These photos were taken with my phone so the quality is not that great.)

Both wines are placed in the “Premium Wine” section!

Today was a great day to go to Sippin by the River at Penn’s Landing to support Crohn’s disease …and Star Cellars.  I went with a few of my friends to sample local beers and wines while Matt was working and pouring Star Cellars’ wines and sakes.  By the middle of the day, word had spread among the thousands of people there that theirs were the wines to try and the line just kept on growing.
