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.
