Missed posting yesterday, but had a good reason. Still pondering on the decision of Posten not to deliver wine to our 22.000 members in Sweden. Spoke to a very smart journalist today about this and if I was a conspiracy theorist this blog would be full of speculation. Posten enjoys good business shipping brown packages with pornographic materials and sex aids to customers that must be over 18 years of age and they ship medicine from Apoteket but a good bottle of Shiraz is forbidden (perhaps the combination of wine, porn and medicines is not a good one!).
Our customers all over Sweden deserve free access to quality wine and we will take this argument further. I will send Lars G. Nordström, the new Managing Director of Posten a letter and see what other avenues of appeal we have to open up their ombud delivery network to wine lovers in this long and wonderful country.
