2018 Bulk Wine Sales

#1 Post by Mike Kuller » March 13th, 2019, 5:02 pm

I recall in the early 1980s people were recommending Gallo Hearty Burgandy because it was a great year for cabernet and much of the excess would flow into the jug wines.

It looks like 2018 may be a similar year. I've heard from a Napa grower that with near perfect growing conditions, the 2018 cabs should be with wines of the decade.

About 20 million gallons of bulk wine are for sale statewide, a result of a record 2018 harvest and slowing wine case sales, according to Turrentine Brokerage.

Should be a good year for negotiants like Cameron Hughes. Even Trader Joes :-)
