The Wine Market and More on Snooth

Rate this store:

  • Well, if you refer to the Victoria market, some understanding that Vancouver Island real estate is not Lower Mainland real estate seems to be emerging.  A 15-20% correction still needed.  We have already had a 20% correction here.  So what I am trying to say, or as Wittgenstein might put it, "what we would like to say is... that the house is now...

  • Love the story about Vlasic Pickles.  Quite instructive and just plain interesting.  However, I was probably a bit more focussed initially on the interference with the retail trade generally.  But the twist you added is a very important one; to wit, that a large pseudo-wholesaler such as Walmart which distributes such high volumes as to warrant ...

  • A bit late but did anyone note that the SC made a ruling on wine sales last week?The issue was a Tennessee requirement that if you wanted to open a retail store, you had to have lived in the state for ten years. A guy wanted to open a Total Wine franchise and was denied, so he sued.Tennessee Wine and Spirits Retailers Association v. Russell F. T... Read More

  • Well Greg, you and I are the same (re: your last paragraph).Generally, that was a depressing piece of typing.  I certainly can see truth in the premise, which is basically young people are totally unlike us.  I can't help disagreeing though about the future of wine sales on the whole.  Detroit would not be my first choice as trendsetter in wine ...

  • No wine isn't going away, but DV - you associate with a rare and sophisticated group of people. Most of us are just poor proles who hang out at the local shot-and-a-beer joint, and for us, wine is either red or white and not much beyond.It is true that wine sales are fine, but his point was that on a daily basis, he sees who is buying what and h...

  • I agree that young people seem to be going more toward craft beer and all manner of chemical dogshit in a can, but I think the wine market is still doing very well.  When I go to Washington, the places I visit to buy wine are doing a robust business as are the wineries and tasting venues (Woodinville, downtown Seattle etc.).  A tremendous percen...

  • It wasn't cold, but it was raining a lot. Everyone said it was really strange and not normal. When the rain stopped it was absolutely beautiful. I asked about flowering, etc., but nobody seemed too worried. I think it's a west coast thing though - I heard the other day that this is the coolest and wettest spring on record in the LA area. At leas... Read More

  • So on a whim we decided to visit British Columbia. But we flew up to Washington, so visited a few places there too. Totally off the subject of wine, I found an awesome bakery in Spokane and the girl there served me this thing that I thought was a kind of Parmesan cheese foam. In fact it was fermented cashew whip, which was definitely weird, but ... Read More

  • Some twenty five years ago, during an informal dinner in a local tavern (tasca in Spanish) in Jerez de la Frontera, my host summoned the owner, “Paco, bring us some of your special Pedro Ximénez”. Paco came over with a dust-covered bottle half full of a dark, dense liquid. He served each of us a carefully measured amount, about one half inch. Ve... Read More

  • "So, what are you going to do on your Travelscope Flavors of Burgundy and Provence cruise aboard Emerald Waterways next July,” one of my viewers asked me.  While I could spend hours speaking about the joys of traveling in France, I restrained myself and answered the question as succinctly as possible --- “A lot.”I guess some details are in order...
