Retail Wine Industry News – American Wine Consumer Coalition

July 15th, 2013

We’re a little behind on some of our blog reading, so we got around to this post on the Wine Bloggers Conference site from 3 weeks ago or so about the launch of the American Wine Consumer Coalition. The group aims to “represent the interest of wine lovers and to help … pursue their love of wine.” [level-members]

Tom Wark is leading the charge and hoping to provide some balance to what he views as the overwhelmingly anti-consumer regulation and one-sided domination of the market. We’ll watch this closely, but if all is as it seems, an advocacy group like this could be a benefit to small retailers as well as consumers. [/level-members]
