Wine prices – can there be a more contentious subject among wine lovers? We all know wine prices have been going up for many years now, but then again, most other consumer goods have as well. And, with relatively few exceptions, most of us have been paying these increases – some of which have been mildly incremental, while others have been quite significant – all in order to keep ourselves on a mailing list, build a cellar, or maintain a vertical of our favorite wines. The question then becomes, at what point does the wine’s price exceed its perceived value to each of us?
The recent world financial problems have compounded this issue. Many people are now “trading down” their regular purchases, or spending less, or not spending at all.
Where will all of this lead? Join us as the GrapeRadio bunch take a look at the current situation, where escalating prices may have met their match with today’s economy. What’s a bottle worth to you?
