100% European Wines Tariffs – what to do to help?
THE WINE INDUSTRY NEEDS YOUR HELP!
As many of you have heard, there may be a 100% tariff on European goods including wine. There was already a 25% tariff in October 2019 imposed on wines from France, Spain, Germany, and the UK, excluding sparkling wines, wines over 14%, and large-format bottles. Since then, the United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer has proposed this new tariff of up to 100% on more European wines and goods.
This will affect all aspects of the wine and hospitality industries from importers, wine shops, restaurants, the consumer, and more.
The most important way you can support is by voicing your opinion BEFORE MONDAY, JANUARY 13TH to tell the USTR and other elected officials how devastating this will be to everyone.
