Keepin' "the man" in check!
Mark over at Uncorked at The Dayton Daily News has really touched on an interesting story about Trader Joes, and the evil monolith that is corporate wine programs. Ok, good and evil, who can tell, but the consumer would never deal with this experience from a local wine shop. The dirty little secret is that Trader JOes wine program isn't all that different that Big Lots. It's often liquidated wines that may be perfectly fine, or terribly flawed. Wineries know that if a wine is ruined, they can just slap an anonymous label on it and sell it for a depply discounted price at TJ's. Please check out the link above.
