Looking for Local Red Wine – a Field Trip

When I started my local eating experiment, I was motivated by three things.  First, I wanted to encourage and support local producers. Second, I wanted to provide some practical insights into how to do more local eating. Finally, if things worked out, I was hoping to take some fun “field trips.”  Like searching Wisconsin for local red wine — dry even.

Alas a host of other responsibilities, along with a fall food preservation panic, have been getting in the way of the third goal.  Until last weekend, when I started my search for something that I had been told was impossible.
