The ancient wine country area of France is a much different than the younger always changing Napa Valley wine country of California, here in the states. Not only are the newcomers challenged with competing with wineries that are thousands of years old, they face challenges with limited space and the rising costs of farming organically. The price of organic production is around 15% higher than traditional farming. It is much easier for the bigger more established wineries to absorb the land of the smaller failed wineries than the start fresh in the old wine country.
