Wine Industry News for October 9, 2017

October 9th, 2017

Bad news from France interesting news from Italy, paying more for wine and liking it, and just how big is the American wine industry? [level-members]

Not really news – or not really a surprise, I guess, but the harvest in Bordeaux did not start well. Kind of caps off a crappy year.

The news from Italy’s harvest is even more interesting.

According to the winemakers in pinstripes – the CEOs and CFOs of the big winemaking concerns – you’ll pay more for wine next year and you’ll like it.

Which should add to the $220 million that the American wine industry is slated to produce in 2017.
