Critics call NY vintner's 9/11 wine distasteful

A New York vintner has produced a 9/11 memorial wine that's been approved by the Sept. 11 memorial board. But critics say the wine's in poor taste.

NEW YORK — A New York vintner has produced a 9/11 memorial wine that's been approved by the Sept. 11 memorial board. But critics say the wine's in poor taste.
The Daily News ( http://nydn.us/oDikzt) says Lieb Family Cellars of Mattituck will donate up to 10 percent from each sale to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.
New York City Councilman Peter Vallone is blasting the $19.11 bottle, saying "What's next? A 9/11 pastrami sandwich?"
Irene Lavelle, whose husband died in the attacks, says the wine demeans the date.
Lieb general manager Garry Madden says the vineyard lost many friends on 9/11, and the wine was a way to give something back.
Sept. 11 memorial board member Monica Iken says the effort will help sustain the memorial for the future.

I'm sure it tastes every bit as good as Uncle Vito's Staten Island wine.

Seems ok to me. That's a hell of a lot better than the 0% that the creators of the yellow ribbon magnet sellers donate along with thousands of other bumper stickers, t-shirts, hats, posters, etc. that are out there. These people actually went through the proper channels and are donating to a good cause, and they get crapped on for it. They could have just as easily slapped an American flag on the bottle along with some yellow ribbons, "never forget" and not donated a dime.

If a deli owner thinks he'll be able to make money off of it, I'm sure we'll have one tomorrow.

I'd be shocked to learn that there ISN'T already a 9/11 pastrami sandwich.
