Do you ever long for the good old days? Were things in the wine world really better in 1990 – or were they actually not as good as we remember? Arguably, the year 1990 signaled the beginning of many changes to come in the growing, making, and selling of wine – not just in California, but throughout the world. Many newcomers had came to set roots in the Napa Valley, bringing about a proliferation of new vineyards and wineries – some seeking cult status, with smaller production and higher prices. With the birth of the internet, wine consumers were able to get more information about wine – and get it much faster than with print media. Non-European wines would soon be known as “New World” wines, and the wine world was to become a much more globalized place.
So, what were things like seventeen years ago? Join us as the GrapeRadio crew get into the fray, discussing just a few of the differences between the world of wine in 1990 and what we see today.
