Wines traveling by sail boat

The folks at 100 mile diet just posted a story about a new/old trend in Europe to ship wines by sail boat. This is how ancient wines were transported, of course. Some winemakers are reviving the trend to reduce their environmental impact (and shipping costs, presumably) by eliminating petroleum transportation fuel. We say, "Fantastic!" Columbus Ohio isn't likely to be reached by sailboat any time soon, but wind farms are being built here to generate consumer energy.
