There are some "French" owned companies here in the U.S. the employ quite a few people. Keeping that in mind I found it hard to boycott any of those companies. Imports however, were a completely different story. I never really bought alot of imported wine, a couple bottles a year at best, so it wasn't very hard for me to quit. The facts in this article lead me to believe that I wasn't the only one.
Freedom Fries! I ain't never gonna buy no Frenchy pro-ducts again! Ya hear?
I haven't noticed the slightest decline in French wine prices. Maybe the importers are keeping the difference.
Who needs French wine, when Washington wines are better?
Not too mention the Australian and CA, also many local wineries.
the french wines lost some parts of market because the australian wines, made into metal tanks, were less expansive : metal tank + piece of wood, instead of real wood barrels.
Anyway, the french wines are still the best, and I don't say that becasue i'm french : the australiana re good, like the CA'ones, of course.
but the high quality french wines have a flavor, a taste...prefect. The Saint-Emilion, ChateauNeuf du Pape, Chateau-Lafitte.......the Sauternes, for the white wine, a prefect wine, swet, sugar...
and the french Champagne, a wonder
For me, France will rest the best place for the best wines, like Scottland is the best place for the best Whisky, and Antilles - Martinique - for the Rhum.
And New York State wines!
Does NYS really product wines ?????
