Year of Wine In Review (2020)

Major highlights include:

• Governments are getting their greasy paws all over wine sales. (aka Tariffs)
• Total wine sales are up but we’re drinking garbage wines
• Independent wineries really struggled this year, but that didn’t some some from doing really creative things to make sales.
• Massive fires in California and Oregon point to climate changes that are somewhat beyond our control.
• By the way, there’s a massive surplus on wines right now. What are we doing about it? Well, a lot of it is getting distilled or poured down the drain!
• We had a really big social awareness campaign which bubbled up out of the work from just a few individuals.
• Taco Bell made a wine called Jalapeño Noir
• A man was caught drinking wine from a tanker truck in central California.

All in all, I can honestly say we haven’t seen a year like this in wine. Period.
