And China is and has done the same - directly pump state money into enterprises so that they could compete with other countries. Don't forget that the WTO will also make a judgement in around 8 m...

Re: Oversupply in the Grape and Bulk Wine Market - And What This May Mean . . .

Millennials are already shifting their focus. Can't see them buying wines with bloated prices even if they could afford them. I see many anecdotes of millennials who do not drink, who do not date, who are vegan, who do intermittent fasting etc. Well that’s a recipe for extinction... [snort.gif]

Terun is owned and run by Italian brothers, so any Italian wines we bring will certainly be appreciated.

Oh, we’ll be sitting in the covered outdoor patio in back, so check weather and dress accordingly. There are heat lamps if it’s cool.
