Do anybody make real shit anymore?

Do me a favour, read: http://www.thestar.com/News/World/article/247573

Damn they don't make 'em like this anymore.

So Canadians are hopping mad that there is counterfeit icewine being produced. Let's be real - the argument that it's harming the industry is absolute bullshit. It's pure delusion when anyone talks of icewine as anything more than a simple, syrupy sweet drink. Nothing more, nothing less. It's not a great wine, and never will be. We have many delusional winemakers here.

If you can prove that you can make icewine into anything more than an alcoholic marmalade, a honey-infused vodka, then I'll be the first to shut up and buy a case. But it's not possible. So instead of bitching at others for trying to make a profit with an inferior product, why don't you focus on creating real wines, wines with an identity and purpose, instead of tropical fruits cellared with sugar. Simple.

Delusion and ignorance, the plagues of the wine world.
