When are those bums at Discovery Wines going to get Peirano Viognier back in stock?

Or *anything* from Thierry Puzelat? Jesus! Usually about half the computers don't work, either. I just can't count on Discovery anymore. The new Astor place store blows it away. Union Square Wine is also opening its new store today -- I will report later with my findings. I'm guessing ti will be too expensive, just like the old Union Square Wine.

Is the new Astor store the one down Lafayette and not on Astor at all? Not that I begrudge them the name, if there's one extremely short street in Manhattan that I associate with warehouse style wine and liquor stores, it's Astor Place.

The Lafayette and Fourth St Astor is that Astor indeed. Though I'm sure it now simply refers to John Jacob instead of his family Place. A recursively vestigial relationship, or vice versa. The New USQ Wines was exactly as expected. I've got to say I called it. Had a great wine from Astor last night -- will blog about it presently.
