In Wine We Trust
 
 

Lets Drink!
The list reads like something that could go under the header of “things that are delicious.” French, Spanish and German wine. Spanish olives. Parmesan. Stilton. Currant jelly. Single Malt Scotch & Irish Whiskey.

But this isn’t a menu at a Chic bistro; it’s a government list spelling out the products subject to a 25 percent increase in tariffs. The expansive array of wines, cheeses, produce, meat and seafood imported to the United States from European Union countries is caught up in a trade war.

Their inclusion on the list, though, means that the price of that bottle of Cotes du Rhone you like to pick up at the store or the cheese plate at your neighborhood bistro could go up. Wines will face a 25 percent tax if they meet the following conditions:

From France, Spain or Germany Under 14 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) Noncarbonated (Champagne Is Exempt!)

Just in time for the holidays - It does not seem fair, but there is nothing that we can do about it. A 25% Tariff on most imported wines & spirits starts this week. But you do have our word  - that we will do the very best that we can to find interesting wines & spirits that still offer great value. Try some of them this Friday night.

WINE TARIFF EXAMPLE:
Lets say that you are buying a gift or there is a special occasion and you buy a $49.99 bottle of French wine.
+ $12.50 (25% Tariff)  + $3.97 Sales Tax   Total = $66.46

But not to worry - when The Man blocks us - we find away around!
