Request local...SIP's HIT LIST for pouring local
Restaurants make such a fuss about buying local. In Spokane, saying ‘buy local’ is like touching gold. This does not always extend to wine. We have many restaurants doing a great job supporting our local wine industry. On SIP, we try to recognize them every chance we get. But we still have some well known restaurants that when you look at the wine list and you might see one or maybe two local wines. If we didn't have such great local wine, I would completly understand a dining establishment passing on the local wineries. But that's not the case.
What can we do about it? That's easy. Request local wine.
