I'm sure someone will tell me this isn't the right place for this, but what the heck, I'll take a chance. There's a bill in front of the State Legislature, AB 1922 (Firebaugh), that could have a seriously negative impact on the variety and price of imported wine, particularly from small producers. The liquor wholesalers and distributors are behind it and were able to ram it through a policy committee yesterday. It's a bad bill, and lovers of fine wine should get in touch with their Assemblymembers and Senators and let them know. There's a story about it on Page A-13 of the Chron today. Feel free to send me an e-mail if you want more info - I work for the Legislature.
