The wine shop here carries a really good Moscato d’Asti, but I can't for the life of me remember its maker. I'll have to look next time I'm there.

Do you know if you can have wine shipped to you? A lot of states have loosened their regulations on shipping wine, so you might be able to order the ones you like on line. Just remember to let the bottle sit for a day or two after transport before opening it, to let it "settle down", otherwise it may not taste its best.

Love Moscato d’Asti...had a bottle of it when in Vegas and for the life of me cannot remember the name. Any good recommendations, besides the two mentioned, would be good as I am in the process of locating it for my father's Christmas present. Willing to even have it shipped so just let me know what you recommend and I will hopefully see if they ship to Jersey.

This is from Wine.com about shipping wine:

Quote:

States where we do not ship wine2

Alabama
Arkansas
Arizona
Delaware
Georgia
Hawaii
Indiana
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Maine
Maryland
Minnesota
Mississippi
Montana

Rhode Island
South Carolina
South Dakota
Tennessee
Utah
Vermont
Wisconsin
States with zip code restrictions on wine shipments3

Alaska
Florida
Idaho
New Hampshire
1 Please be sure you have chosen your Ship To state correctly, as regulations in certain areas of the U.S. prohibit their residents from receiving wine shipments directly.

2 These states are limited to accessories and non-wine Gourmet Food Baskets only. Wine.com does not ship wine to these states due to current legal restrictions.

3 Local laws prevent us from shipping to certain zip codes in these states. Information regarding zip codes that are not currently serviced by Wine.com will appear at the time that orders are placed.

* State regulations in Connecticut prohibit wine and food from being shipped in the same package. As such, Wine.com does not offer for sale in these states any gift baskets, clubs or collections that contain both food and wine.

** State regulations in New York prohibit wine and food from being shipped in the same package. Baskets ordered that include both food and wine will be sent in two separate packages.

*** Texas state law prohibits us from shipping wines containing more than 16% alcohol.



Looks like New Jersey is a Yes, Maine is a No and so is Arizona Sad I know a lawyer here though that gets A Lot of wine shipped to him!! GOing to have to ask him about that!!! (Maybee he has an addy in California, we are on the boarder!)

Okay, I'm going to make a little complaint. I hate when I go to someone's house and they serve me wine in a regular beverage glass. You can get a wine glass for $2 so what's the deal? Even if you don't drink it, you can get a small cheap set for guests if you are going to serve wine, right? It just feels so much nicer drinking it out of a wine glass.

By the way - that's my tip. Serve wine in a wine glass! I'm not even going to say it has to be the right wine glass but at least a wine glass!!! Very Happy

Oh Michele, I sooooo agree. Now I'm not a wine snob by any means, but I have to have my wine in a wine glass! (given a plastic cup and my head just about spins off lol)

Whew! DD - I was worried that I'd be called a snob. I'm totally not either! Even though it may seem that way when I got out to dinner and someone in my part orders a white zin and I cringe! It's just that that USED to be me before I expanded my horizons! Also, I know how women who drink that are perceived.

Oh I so agree with you on this one...I have been know to bring a set of wine glasses (Walmart) along with the bottle of wine when we're going somewhere that I know I'll be getting in a jelly jar if I didn't.
