On 12th July 2006 wine company ‘The Travelling Vineyard’, the marketing arm of Geerlings and Wade are charged with a gross misdemeanour of selling liquor without a license. Advertised as “wine adventures in your home,” The Traveling Vineyard delivers wine to residents for wine tasting parties in many states. The company has reportedly racked up about $1 million in Minnesota over the past two years so you have to admire clever marketing wherever and however it happens.
