BevAlc Roundup | TTB Continues Consignment Sales Investigations, Wine Exports Drop in Last Year, and How to Beat Counterfeit Wines

Ship Compliant Wine Blog - Mon, 03/18/2019 - 15:30

In the last Roundup, we predicted that the cold winter weather was finally on its way out — and then large parts of the country were hit by intense snow storms! We’ll chalk that up to a coincidence this time, and continue to extend our hopes for a warm, pleasant and imminent spring. Though as part of this week’s Roundup we have an article about how much benefit the wine industry does receive from these extended snow storms — so we can at least be happy for the moisture.

For this week’s Roundup, we also look at new rules for nutritional and informational labeling that are being considered by the TTB, what the wine industry can and should do to expand its marketing to Gen Xers (and everyone else, by the way), and whether the concept of terroir should be applied to whiskey like it is for wine.

In case you haven’t heard, the 2019 DtC Report has been published. Download your copy today here.

Thanks for reading the Roundup this week. As ever, be sure to check out the rest of the ShipCompliant blog for regular updates, and we’ll see you again in another couple weeks.
