Threat of wine tariffs is still looming

Threat of wine tariffs is still looming

Earlier this week you may have heard that an agreement has been reached between Presidents Macron (France) and Trump regarding the French Digital Service Tax (DST) through 2020.  The DST threatened to target French Sparkling wine and Champagne. The DST tariff may be on hold, but the wine tariff war still wages on…There are two tariffs of which the wine industry is caught in the crossfire, and the other still stands to cause catastrophic damage.

  • 👋HELLO 2019 wines! We’re ready for rosé season – how about you?! In the Southern Rhône Valley, a winding road meaning along the foothills of the Costières de Nîmes lead us alongside orchards and through vineyards, to Château Mourgues du Grès where winemaker François Collard and his wife Anne shared their passion and family story with the Bourget team when we last visited in 2017.

The name Château Mourgues du Grès pays homage to its past occupants, having been home to the Convent of the Ursulines prior to the French Revolution; mourgues being French for nuns, and grès pebbles — referring to the rounded rocks strewn throughout the Alps by glaciers long ago, which lend their wines a signature minerality and freshness. 
In the courtyard of the Château, a sundial reads “Sine Sole Nihil”, meaning nothing without sun, an admonition that the sun is is paramount to all that happens here today, providing ripeness in spite of the relentless and cooling winds of the Mistral.  Today, the bottles of Château Mourgues du Grès with the sundial featured on their front labels. .

  • 🌹💘Wishing you a Valentine’s Day filled with Gran PASSIONE!
  • Yesterday Annette visited the office of Senator Tina Smith and explained that there is little time to urge the USTR to remove wine from the Annex II list in the upcoming carousel of tariffs.

Annette’s biggest take-away from the meeting is that our Senate office is interested in how this affects MINNESOTA WINE BUSINESSES. 
So if you have not contacted your representative, it is critical to do so now — they are just days away from the next tariff decision.

If you are a business that buys wine, act now!  Tell your representative about how wine tariffs would affect you, and  that you want wine OFF the Section 301 LCA Dispute. Reference docket number USTR-2019-0003, and ask that they pass your letter to the United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer this week. **NEXT WEEK IS TOO LATE** For more talking points and a how to contact your representative, visit: http://bit.ly/wine-tariff (LINK IN PROFILE)
