    Default No more Bressan for me

    Too bad, I liked the couple I've tried.I don't try to "vet" producers re social views, but once I read this I believe all of Bressan's wines would leave a very sour taste in my mouth:

    Yes, just sad to see. It's likely that his views aren't unique in the
    wine world, but by making them so public he's certainly taken himself
    off my radar.

    Yikes. That is some extremist speech, even if the sentiments are not
    unique, the vitriol probably very nearly is. Even if he apologizes, his
    true colours are revealed.

    I would hope that a consumer boycott would be pretty general.

    The blog for which you give the url does have something I found very usefulon the same page as the Bressan incident. See the link to it at http://dobianchi.com/italian-grape-n...ation-project/ . I am likely not the only one who has trouble with pronunciation of Italian wine names, especially the more obscure ones.

    As for Bressan's comments you can find equally vile ones in many places. What sets his apart are that he has a business to run,and only a hermit wouldnot know that such comments would be bad for sales. Thus the vileness and stupidity combined do make Bressan's remarks nearly unique.This is a classic case of putting one's foot in one's mouth.
