In USA Today, a trend piece on the rise of Grower Champagne. In his latest Washington Post wine column, Dave McIntyre urges consumers to seek out Grower Champagnes. Looks like the secret is out!

In Tennessee, the Red, White and Food campaign is pushing lawmakers to allow ballot initiatives on supermarket wine sales.

In Palate Press, W. Blake Gray writes about the sparkling wines of Franciacorta.
