Kaz and Randy once again host a full studio, with James Crawford of TheWineDown.com and Tom Wark (of Fermentation: The Daily Wine Blog). James is evasive on his venture, to the point of invoking snipers and other talk of guns; otherwise, he is a capable salesman for Everett Ridge and Esterlina wineries, as well as the upcoming Association of African-American Vintners seminar at COPIA.
Tom mentions the Illinois wine shipping legislation that went into effect on June 1, with a tip to the wise that the Illinois government are likely already conducting sting operations to entrap wineries into shipping to Illinois without a permit. So, go get your Illinois permits, kids!
All that and more this week on Wine Biz Radio!
