Distribution dilemma



In Bill Bishop’s Commentary (“Counterpoint: Paying the price”), he states a law change would “negatively impact selection and price, just as it’s done in Texas.” I cannot really address the selection, but since we have purchased wine for nearly half the price for the same wine here, his comment makes no sense, unless he means negative to him.

The whole problem with the liquor laws here is that you have to buy from an “approved wholesaler,” who jacks up the prices, rather than buying from the wineries. I will gladly give up some selections, if that is actually true, when I can buy a wine that I like for half the price that it costs here.
