Reply to "california wines for house wines"

I know you are talking about the low end CA value wines but... I was wondering why more restaurants don't buy a few cool wines direct from small wineries not sold by distributors in the Twin Cities. IE.. Loring,Brewer Clifton, Melville, Blackjack Ranch, Rafanelli, Paloma, David Arthur, etc. Why not offer customers something besides a full list of usual overpriced suspects. Most wine list in the Twin cities totally lack imagination and are marked up way too much. We had dinner at Oceanaire two weeks ago and they had Shafer Red Shoulder Ranch for $95/btl???? So I brought in a 99'Hanzell.
