If you expect to be anywhere near New York City on November 18th I recommend you plan to attend the Wine 2.0 trade tasting and film screening of "America's Wine: The Legacy of Prohibition"
The new documentary film is an in-depth look at wine in America covering everything from the noble experiment of Prohibition which decimated the vibrant wine community to the rise of the “Phoenix” generation of wine pioneers including Robert Mondavi and Ernest Gallo to the more recent battles over direct shipping of wines to consumers. No wine lover should miss this historic film.
Beverage Media is a media sponsor for the event and Ian will be attending. Admission to the trade is free but you need to be registered in advance here: http://winetwoexpo.eventbrite.com/
