    I personally have used http://www.miraclefruittab.com/ for buying Miracle Fruit as they seem to have the best bulk pricing and have always shipped quickly. However, the pricing at the above site seems good for smaller quantities.

  7. Great site, I will be checking back for any new articles and linking back to you from my site.

    The Science of Winemaking with Greg Karsner of Horseshoe Bend Winery
    on Monday, September 28, 2009
    We had a great time at 60 West Bistro. The dinner was really something to talk about and so well presented. The wine chemistry was fun and the wine served really went well with the meal. Those that missed it…really missed something.

    Saw you on Louisville Life – what a great idea/organization! Any interest in starting one in Lexington? I don’t think I could manage it on my own, but if others have contacted you about a franchise let them know there’s at least one Central Kentuckian who would join! In the meantime, do you have to be from Louisville to join?
