I am happy to announce that the Shier Winery license application is now pending before the New York State Liquor Authority. Unfortunately, they've misspelled the name of Shier Winery as "Sheir Winery." I'm told that no one gets through without a deficiency notice, so I look forward to being told what is missing or incorrect in the application. The submitted application, by the way, was as thick as a phone book.
