Thanks for your letter dated 112008. It is a disappointment that South Dakota and the liquor wholesalers have such a tight control on what wines a consumer has for choice; especially after the Supreme Court ruling 2/3 years ago which essentially left the choice to the state legislature to open the state to limited direct sales. I for one think Anne Amie is exactly the type of winery which gets short changed by this narrow view point regarding direct sales. Certainly limiting a resident participant to share in a wine club experience of tasting fine wines not available (Anne Amie)anywhere else is very frustrating. You will likely never be able to market your wines through the wholesale state liquor monopoly and hence your winery is closed out to resident participants who like to search for very good wines from small producers. To wit:given the Oregon production laws limited gross output there are few Oregonian wines of anykind in South Dakota, your wineries don't have enough clout to market in SD. Whatever you can do to work with other small producers around the country but especially in Oregon to convince our legislature to open the state to limited direct sales would be a good thing. In the meantime I will savor what i have in my wine cellar and hope for the best. D. S. Hooper
