How can you make wine in Italy, bottle it, ship it to new york, truck it across country to Milwaukee, sell it to a local Italian retailer, who then sells it to you for $3.33.
Wheres the profit?
The best part is its a good red table wine, better than that $20 laxative I poured down the drain in my last post.

Dinner prep with this hot (15% a.b.v.) red blend.
Dark inky color, long legs. Nice scent of black fruit, taste of ripe plums, black berrys, red grapes, tobacco and leather. Paired with garlic tomato chops, American fries and broccoli.
Medium acidity and a long finish. Oh, by the way, isolation, hunker down with a bottle of wine and netflix if you can. Stay safe.

Vinted and bottled in Woodridge Illinois for the Cooper Hawk restaurant chain.
Light and very floral, semi sweet. Paired with assorted cheese and crackers for lunch.
Like they say, if you don't like the weather in Wisconsin, wait 5 minutes and it will change. Surprising to see my fountain had iced over this morning, May 9, 2020.
