  1. Hi, Jason:

    Hasn't it always been "marred" by commerce and politics?

      That would be my reaction as well. I'll ask my inherited son-in-law and get back to you on this.

      I must say that I see an incredible amount of activity in awarding new AOC's and sub classifications these days. However, I am not aware of this activity that refuses wines within an AOC.
