Where the Wild Wines Are

This is something I never do – repeating myself from one blog to another – but I was so happy with how this post turned out, I just had to steer you to it. Not only that, the movie did very well over the weekend.

So, please check out Where the Wild Wines Are and roar.

    In a few months we will be launching wineclubzone.com. Our main goal is to index all the wine clubs nationwide both online and offline. We will also be launching a blog network and featuring top notch blogs like yours.

    We wanted to see if you would be interested in joining the network. Here would be the benefits

    * We would use your site feed and feed in the first 200 characters of your post and link back to you as a means of driving traffic to your site
    * We will link you from our blogs page

    In return we ask for a 125X125 widget on your sidebar.

    Let us know if this is something you would be interested in. Email me at joe@nullwineclubzone.com

    Thanks,

    Joe

    You don't get it and you never will. Unlike shopping in the U.S., where 'Buyer Beware' is a way of life, here in Canada when a bottle of wine says B.C. Wine, we trust for it to have been made from grapes grown here in B.C. and then processed and bottled here in B.C. Bottles of wine that are simply filled in B.C. with other wines from around the world are nowhere near the same thing. We don't look for the small print, because we don't believe we have to. If it says it's a B.C. wine, it should be as advertised. What Jackson Trigg did was to break this trust we have with companies in this field. In the old days, when we bought Calona Wines for example, we knew we were getting a bottle of plonk, nothing else. We used it to make Gluevein or for cooking. Hardy souls actually drank it, but it was horrible stuff – at least we knew it. Now, with the advent of so many good wineries in the Okanagan Valley and Vancouver Island, we expect a higher standard by supporting them when we go to the liquor store. We experiment and taste-test, and we don't always rave about what we bought. But we knew it was a B.C. product. I think it's time for you to realize that we don't think like the U.S., and when we are cheated, we yelp! That's what all the reaction has been about. If you want to compare us to your old ways of life in California, then don't. We are nothing like those people, and God bless us for it.
