If we can afford $25.00 for a bottle of wine why not add additional taxes to wine? Wine is not a necessity like gas but those who can and do consume expensive wines wouldn't mind a modest tax added to it, at least I wouldn't think they would. They are still going to drink what they want and most who can afford expensive wines would be embarrassed to present cheap wine to their guests.

Seems like a better idea to me than hitting EVERYONE at the gas pump. You buy wine by the bottle rather than the gallon so we could put an additional dollar on each bottle and end up collecting roughly $4.00/gallon.
