Re: Shipping wine by sailing Ship
A little pretentious, doing it to be "green". Doing it to save money (no fuel costs), doing it for nostalgia (with tastings aboard the ship) that would be great. Doing it to raise awareness of sail and the romantic lure of the sea, I would support it in a heartbeat.
But you can only do this to be "green" (a term and mindset I despise, they are being Luddites... and Luddites are stooopid!) can only be feasible for crap we do not need. Like French wine (we have plenty of good domestic wines in the US now). The number of human on this planet demand that we use energy to feed, clothe and house us all. And if you think humans are the "problem" act like you mean it and reduce the problem by eliminating yourself from the planet.
