Driverless Cars

OK. Additional cars on road. Some kind of energy will be used to power these robots.
Besides saving money for corporations by putting people out of work,
what problem has the driverless car solved?

And Pierre Cardin passed to the Big Runway this week.
Many said he dressed Jane Jetson because: "The clothing I prefer is the one
I create for a life that does not yet exist, the world of tomorrow."

As a fan of Jane Jetson and Pierre Cardin, and with their collective spirits in mind,  
I chose a wine that is for today but can fly into the future!
BTW, while Pierre has been thought of as French, and true he was raised in France,
Pierre was born Pietro Costante Cardin in San Biagio di Callalta, Italy near Venice.

Ciao Asheville has issued a statement mourning the loss of their countryman.
Genetics, baby! Nevertheless, we go French on the wine:

Veema - Best Valued European Wines
VEEMA Rouge 2016 - Languedoc, FR
Florentia Stoppini, Winemaker

Blend: 45% Grenache, 5% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre
Aging: 6 months in new French oak barrels.
Tasting notes: Veema’s time-honored and harmonious combination of Syrah,
Grenache, and Mourvèdre offer an engaging wine that preserves the boldness
and complexity of that blend. Leather and smoked meat give a brawny edge
to a nose of pure, fragrant black fruit, brown spice, vanilla, and violets.

We poured Veema for the New Year's Eve Zoom Event
with the importer, Philippe Bourgeois, and the bottle was a BIG HIT. BIG.

Philippe says VEEMA can go 5 years "into the future" in bottle!

92 Points from The Tasting Panel Magazine.
** An amazing Value at $14.99 **
(Still celebrating NYE! Regular shelf price is $16.99)
Bringing VEEMA to $12.75 per bottle by the case!
