- Discovering the Joys of New Zealand Wine

Newsletter for April, 2004 - Part One

First, it has come to my attention, that some readers may have a mis-understanding about the third article in the Special Edition Newsletter. Let me clarify by stating that the events at the Australian Embassy Lamb and Wine Festival were real, as were the tasting notes.

April is a month that can be very taxing on your time and bank account. While you chase down those reciepts for your deductions, you might not have time to find a good bottle of New Zealand wine. After you see Line 72 and write the check, you might need to find a good bargain. So in this edition of the newsletter, we introduce the KiwiWineries Market Guide - Spring Edition. The guide lists what is on the shelves this month at leading retailers in the DC area and a few national retailers. Compare, shop, enjoy.

Our legal department has put together a sixteen page disclaimer, available upon request, covering issues such as avilabiltiy (it was there when we researched) and errors, either typographical or by Bebo, the stockboy, when he put the price on it. Remember, the Market Guide, like the City Paper, is worth every cent you and the advertisers paid for it.

Part One contains the retailers in DC. Part B will have Maryland, Virginia, and national retailers. An "S" to the right of the price, denotes a Sale Price.
