Daily Wine News: A Curious Market

Posted by | Posted in Wine News | Posted on 08-03-2022

In SevenFifty Daily, Roger Morris looks at how importers are embracing niche regions and lesser-known grape varieties. “Curiosity drives much of the discovery process for new wines and new wine regions, both for ardent consumers and trade professionals. It seems we are all hard-wired to constantly be asking, “what’s new?” and “what’s next?””

On Jeb Dunnuck’s site, R.H. Drexel highlights Xavier Arnaudin, owner and co-founder of Union Sacré in Paso Robles, who “co-owns and operates California’s only entirely Alsatian house. He pursues the types of wines he’d like to drink and share with others, irrespective of where they come from or how recognizable they are to the average American consumer.”

The Champenois have reacted quickly to the changing market and some of the side effects that climate warming is having on grape growing in the appellation, announcing sweeping reforms to the way in which the reserve system operates, reports the Drinks Business.
