This. And cheese...
I never knew there was a tariff, nor could I possibly care. I have quality at my doorstep and it keeps local markets/industries strong.
Buy local, especially when it is just as good.

You want to read up on the grape variety that was killed off in France due to a disease and only reestablished there from trimmings of US vines. But you are right... I agree that you don't know what is going on. *shrug*

Blind taste tests have shown that sommeliers are full of schitt time and time again if they don't see the label/price tag first. But please, go on...

I actually really like South African and Argentinian wines.

Wine from France has fewer carbon miles for anyone east of the Mississippi than wine from California does.

And I buy local, too -- as in made within a hundred miles of me.  There's more to wine in the US than just California.
