Dear Dr. LJ

I'm running dangerously low on red wine leavings (also known as dregs or lees). Andrei spent a good portion of the morning calling wineries trying to find out where I could acquire more. One place had just gotten rid of theirs for the year, and only did white wine anyway; a bunch of others weren't answering their phones; and another had no idea what we were talking about. (Doesn't give me much confidence in their wine....)

Anyone have any bright ideas? I know wine leavings are used in cooking other things than Cakes of Light - they can't be *that* impossible to acquire around here.
