For a lot of (smaller) French and Italian wineries exporting their wines to the USA is very difficult. Rules and laws vary from state to state. Sometimes wine labels must be altered. This means that a lot of high quality wines that are offered in Europe for a reasonable price are simply not available in the States.
It is frustrating for the people that have toured with us and learned to appreciate the local wines often cannot continue their experience. More in general: America is missing a lot of high quality wines for a good price, because they cannot buy them.
That is why we have founded the JoliSoleil Wine Club USA.
