While the EU and British government are still in limbo discussing the imminent exit from the EU many industries are unsure of their future. Among them is the wine industry which held a conference discussion at Vinexpo recently. The election a couple of weeks ago is a cause for celebration with more moderate politicians in power who may help keep the industry stable. Currency devaluation is causing a rise in the price of wine. One panelist was very confident that Brexit would have minimal effect on the wine industry. There were many topics discussed but the main takeaway was that the wine industry would like the politicians to keep the difficulties of the transition to a minimum so trade is not disturbed.
“Sterling is a good 15% down on last year and it has meant that wine prices so far for the UK consumer have risen slowly but surely.”
