Distillation and storage of wine to be permitted, but not funded

With tanks full to the brim at production level, the glass remains half empty in Brussels. In a press release issued on 22 April, the European Commission stated that it was proposing “additional exceptional measures to further support agricultural and food markets most affected” by the consequences of the global coronavirus epidemic.

Lack of foreign seasonal workers causes concern that the French wine industry will run out of manpower

Vines are growing as fast as fears of not having enough manpower to keep them under control. “Some ministries are hell-bent on the idea that local labour will suffice, with people that have been furloughed, students, restaurant and hotel employees...

The Wine World is Prejudiced Against Higher Alcohols

The Wine World is Prejudiced Against Higher Alcohols

I must begin by saying quite clearly that I am not, myself, free from prejudice.

Let me give you an example: I regularly pick up a bottle of California Pinot Noir, turn it around to take in the back label and... wince? grimace? gag? when I see an alcohol level of 14.8%. It's true. I have some reasons for this prejudice, ones that like any bigoted person I personally believe to be justified and rational (where Pinot comes from they generally try not to let it get that ripe), but the strength of my justification doesn't mean I'm not prejudiced.

Boxed wines stole the show during lockdown but will they become a hospitality staple?

Boxed wines stole the show during lockdown but will they become a hospitality staple?

Lockdown proved to be particularly conducive to sales of boxed wines in French supermarkets, but will the hospitality industry swap bottles for boxes after the end of lockdown? Eric Lanxade, sales director for Caves et Vignobles du Gers in South-West France, which produces 400,000 hectolitres of bulk wine (PGI Côtes de Gascogne and Vin de France) annually, certainly thinks so.

Home wine consumption has significantly increased during confinement

Home wine consumption has significantly increased during confinement

The frequency of wine consumption has increased significantly during the confinement caused by the coronavirus in Spain, as well as in the rest of Europe. However, this is not the case regarding the number of buyers, which has decreased, as well as the average expenditure per bottle, due to domestic self-supply, among other issues. These are the conclusions that can be drawn about the behaviour of European wine consumers after more than a month of confinement, with over 6,600 people polled in eight European countries (Spain, Belgium, Italy, France, Austria, Germany, Portugal and Switzerland), which included the participation of researchers from the Polytechnic University of Valencia, University of Zaragoza and Public University of Navarre.

Brussels to let the wine industry distil and store its surpluses with no support

Pressure from ministers and members of parliament has been to no avail - the European Commission has no intention of spending a penny more to help the wine industry through the coronavirus crisis, even though it has acknowledged the current challenges it faces.

France agrees 140 million euro wine distillation support plan

PARIS (Reuters) - France approved support for French winemakers on Monday to distil wine surplus into alcohol following a slump in demand because of restaurant and bar closures and lower exports due to extra U.S. tariffs, but the measures fell short of union requests.

Champagne Sales Suspended, Burgundy Wine Asks For Help

French alcohol producers are being hit hard by the pandemic–the champagne industry suspended early sales (when it usually sells around 10-15 million bottles) because of a slump and Burgundy winemakers are unhappy about a government plan that was supposed to offer them respite against the recent spike in U.S. tariffs on French wine.

French wine industry not entirely convinced by coronavirus crisis plan

After initial announcements of “exceptional [government] support for the wine industry” on May 11, Christine Laloue, chair of the Sancerre winegrowers’ organisation was despondent: “I have nothing solid to tell my winegrowers”. The lack of precision and calibration for exemption from national insurance contributions (talk of €100 million) and crisis distillation measures (2 million hectolitres at €70/hl), have left the Loire winegrower patently disappointed. “The measures announced remain vague. Exemption from national insurance contributions is essential, but we would have liked it to be clearer” in terms of amounts and conditions of eligibility, stressed Laloue. Her viewpoint is shared by Champagne winegrowers, who fear the package of aid may go through without them being able to use it.

Michael Fridjhon: What will the South African wine landscape look like after the pandemic?

Anyone who loves Cape wine has every reason to be anxious (if not actually panic-stricken) about the industry’s prospects as Covid-19 (and the state’s response to it) wreaks a swathe of destruction through the economy and the wine trade. If we don’t succumb to the disease, will we recover from the destruction of value which has accompanied the measures put in place to control its spread?
