In one of my previous posts before my trip took place, vnrose52 mentioned buying local wines for less at Long's Drug store, but was not sure if this still was the case.
We went in search of Long's and found that it is now a CVS with a more extensive selection of wines than the other CVS in town. (This Nutmegger still can't get over the fact that you can buy wine AND hard liquor in a chain pharmacy and in supermarkets!)
It is indeed true that the wines are cheaper --sometimes as much as $6 a bottle!! --but is limited to a hand ful of local vineyards.
It was well worth the trip--thanks!
