Would you like some Wisconsin cheese to go with that Wisconsin wine?

The Supreme Court ruled this morning that state laws against the importation of wine from other states are unconstitutional. In other news, Amazon.com has ventured into another online sales market: wine. Hmmm.

Srah likes this idea. I don't know quite how it will play out and whether it only applies to domestic wines, but it always frustrated me that a few foreign wines I liked had no Michigan distributor so I couldn't buy them here. If they do extend it to beers and liquors, I wonder what effect that will have. Will a Yuengling still be so delicious and so craved by Pennsylvanians once you can get it everywhere?

Here's an interesting post about the possible effect.

Also, I like the idea that the Supreme Court "ruled" this morning. You go, Supreme Court! Even you, Justice Scalia!

Another 5-4 ruling ... brace yourselves for less common sense after the Bushies finish packing the courts. In the mean time, let's get drunk on out-of-state mail order wine!

When you move in with me in California we can take a trip to wine country too. It's not French...but it's better than Michigan wine :-p

Then we can mail it back to Michigan!

Re: Yeungling

Yes. It's easily the best beer on the market.
