Wine on the web

Representatives for Amazon.com are making a presentation to the Long Island Wine Council today.

Wine sales on the internet behomoth are scary for retail stores. More scary than Costco selling wine?

Here’s a story. Some customers at the restaurant especially like the Cinquante-Cinq Sauvignon Blanc from the South of France that we poured by the glass for a time this summer. Instead of going to the local liquor store and asking the owner to order her a case, the customer went online and ordered it from The Wine Library in New Jersey. No shipping charge, she said. Any liquor store owner will be more than willing to order a case of wine from the distributor if you’re willing to take the whole case. Score one for Wine Library.

What does this have to say about the previous post?
