Posted by | Posted in Wine News | Posted on 12-01-2020

Millennials are into wine, but the industry hasn’t figured that out yet, says Julia Coney in the Washington Post.

Small, family owned wineries are always assumed to make artisanal, sustainable wines. In Meininger’s, Felicity Carter asks if it’s true. “There is an implicit assumption that smallholders are more ethical, more craft-oriented and better for the environment than their big counterparts. This is a fundamental misunderstanding of how the wine market functions.”

In Wine-Searcher, W. Blake Gray considers how the new Chinese wine tariffs on Australian wine will have a global impact. “Of all the slow and fast factors that drive a vineyard ecosystem, climate feels like the hardest for a vine grower to grapple with. Soil can be amended, canopies can be managed, but the vast and chaotic shifts in weather events seem beyond human control.”

In the Buyer, Michelle Williams explains why it’s important to build vineyard biodiversity to combat climate change.
