Growth Area

If it's made from grapes, like it says, they grow better ON the Mizouri River. Most of [here]'s wines from Missouri are grown on the Missouri. Seth 22:57, 11 May 2006

From the article I read on wikipedia, it seemed there were vineyards EVERYWHERE before Prohibition. This may have to be re-adjusted of course, since I've never personally been to MO and I don't know 100% what I'm talking about. BoArthur 07:15, 12 May 2006 (PDT)


Why would NF have banned it ? (I assume there a story behind it) --Marc Pasquin 18:12, 11 May 2006 (PDT)

...Because there's long-standing animosity between the two and NF was going through a particularly nationalistic phase? (Kind of like the rules that a certain amount of music on the radio HAS to be Canadian...) That's what I had in mind, anyway. BoArthur 07:13, 12 May 2006 (PDT)
I don't think they would ban it outright, the problem the authorities have with one another is about politic and culture, not products. If anything, there would be more chance of NF buying from LA then France: the first is a "misguided" cousin while the second is the bastard father who walk out on them. Thats why I wrote on the "alcohol of New Francy" page that most of the wine consume localy came from Louisianna. Since there is no local production of Brandy (and for the reasons explained before, no cognac), I wouldn't dream of fully denying some nobby Neofrancians their drink of choice.
If you want to keep it out from NF for a while (to create a boom later on), there would of course be the possibility of high tariff barrier (to protect local products) going until the late 50s (thats during the nationalistic "great darkness" era of Regent De Plessis). It could also have something to do with the product itself: *here* there is a cheese made in Quebec which, thought delectable and all, is illegal to export anywhere due to it being made with raw milk. So something that goes into making Montignac, either the grapes or method of production, which could make someone nervous at customs (even though the product itself is safe). For all I know, its the foot stomping part that would have done it. --Marc Pasquin 07:53, 12 May 2006 (PDT)
Hmm...good points. I'll prolly have to adjust it, then. :) BoArthur 08:59, 12 May 2006 (PDT)
