Britain’s general election has broadened the Brexit debate, which introduced more uncertainties. One of many uncertainties is whether Brexit is going to affect wine trade in UK. The uncertainty of wine trade has its solid ground of arguments: nearly 90 percent of wine in Britain is imported and around 55 percent is from EU. It’s already speculated that the price for Bordeaus en primeur has already increased from 10 to 15 percent in 2016. Many wine merchants would try to protect themselves by heding, however, this technique is not efficient for wines that last longer than a year.
“Average wine prices hit an all-time high at the start of 2017, reaching £5.56 per bottle, according to the WSTA. A cocktail of weak sterling, inflation and duty tax rises have been to blame for this, it has said.”
