Re: “North Carolina's ridiculous liquor laws

Spent a long weekend in my home state of PA for a wedding. Had heard the word grappa and just figured it was some kind of wine. I love wine! Went to a restaurant in downtown Pittsburgh called Lidias where the food was great and the grappa even better. There were at least 10-14 grappas on the menu. Of course Pittsburgh has a strong Italian population so that is a no brainer. Came home to NC and of course the people at the liquor store didn't know what it was. I wasn't surprised and just wondered how I can order some grappa. That is some fine sipping and great at the end of a fine meal. ** To note in 1986 when I first tried to buy two half gallons of liquor for a party I had to register because if you bought over a half gallon you might just might be considered a bootlegger! I was mystified! It is interesting that in my husband's family there was a bootlegger whose demise was due to his illegal activities. Have we really come far in NC with our liquor laws? I don't think so. Such a shame. When I was in France I brought back some eaux-de-vie which has been compared to grappa. Can't get that here either.
