I won a bottle of Happy Camper Cabernet Savigon in a drawing at the Birthday Bash! My thanks to the donater! It was very good!

I loved the label enough to remove and save that too. I have since been trying to find a source for it locally, so far without luck. I'm headed off campoing tomorrow and today's mission is to find it!! I will also try the online link above in hopes it is sold in my(NY) or my kids state (MD).

booze distribution is tricky biz with rules and rituals and wheel greasin' needed.

((online sales/shipping is an entirely different issue controlled by state/fed laws))

wholesale/retail shipping is basically all about finding a transport/distributor GOING to a given state...

who is WILLING to use truck space/fuel/driver time for the products.

then finding a merchant who will GIVE the product shelf space...

when the merchant PROBABLY hasn't even heard of the product.

the HC wine folks have much larger/well known brands in their company...

so consider the HC wine like as special, a boutique bottle is you will...

ASK your local booze store about it,
see if they can get it,
tell them its FANTASTIC wine!
_________

remember when coors was only available in 6-7 states?

that was some MIGHTY fine coors beer in those daze...

and they used REAL rockymtnspringwater...

i had friends in "no coors" states

who would make beer runs 100s of miles to get the good stuff...

then drink 1/2 of it in the car on the way home...

cheers

Everybody likes the name and the label. I haven't tried it but the couple of comments I've heard about it made me think I should just enjoy the label.

and the INFO u are getting is probably from folks who know nothing about the winery producing HC.

here's the thing...

like ANY wine there is history, tradition, REGION, vint'rs BS and so on...

then there is the taste.

HC is and has been reviewed and typically given 81-84 point scores.

at the PRICE POINT it's a very drinkable wine.

screw tops and bags are rapidly replacing syn corks which are replacing natural cork...

like most modern DOMESTIC wines this stuff isn't for cellaring,

it's to drink now...
________

yes enjoy the label if you like but folks from NY are often clueless about things from the great PNW...

or ANYTHING west of phili' for that matter.

(howz that for a generalization...)

also keep in mind the HC wine folks OWN AND USE an airstream...

they are 1 of us and nice folks.

cheers

is that salsa made in neeeeeeeew yourk?

prior to prohibition and the growth of cali grapes...

NY was the major wine producing state, as measured in LITERS of vin...

that VOLUME didn't and doesn't equal GOOD WINE however.

the 2nd leading state for wine production volume in those days...

missouri...

i sure agree with your "why import" notion...

which is why i try never to by anything made in da'ehmpHIger state.

cheers

At the third liquor Store they just plain laughed at me; thought I was kidding! I did check the 'availability" page online and called the only distributor listed there. He wasn't too helpful. Told me to try a place in Syracuse, "they carry everything", but he didn't say they had HC!

I saw NY listed as a state that they can mail to. I'll give that a try, though the hurry is over; the airstream leaves tomorrow!

PS. Hmm, maybe when I get some HC, I'll take a bottle around to the liquor stores for a little wne tasting. Who knows, maybe they'll fall for the label!!!

It's available at the Casini Ranch Campground store in Duncans Mills Ca. That's where we hold our NorCal Spring Rallys. It's a good seller when Airstreamers attend. Anyone doubt Streamer's good taste?

hi Robin,

glad that you enjoyed it! we stumbled across it last year at

Total Wine & More - River Edge, NJ

which is still way far from you, just outside NYC.

they also have a store in Cherry Hill, NJ, closer to MD.

the HC web page has a listing for a distributor outside Philadelphia, again, closer to MD. Happy Campers Wines | Availability


good luck! Happy Camping!

best,
