In Wine Spectator, Liz Thach reports on Brazil’s growing wine industry. “Brazil’s wine industry dates to the 1880s, when a handful of wineries were established by northern Italian immigrants, but has now grown to more than 1,100 wineries. During the past decade, the wine industry has expanded, with revenues increasing from US$213 million in 2007 to more than $640 million in 2017.”

Tom Wark shares the results of his 2018 American Wine Writer Survey. “While numerous aspects of the wine writers’ work remain very similar to what it was 25 years ago, a great deal has changed too.

But as the survey shows, the community of wine writers is also changing, particularly with regard to gender.”
