So this is the direction the wine industry is going? What once was a nice little family run winery in Umbria (just south of Chianti) is advertising like Heineken on a Long Island to Manhattan commuter train. So much for botique... Craft Beer is winning the battles, can wine come back & win the war?
85% of all wine purchased in the US market comes from 5 giant wine companies. Wine is one of the most diverse products yet the consumer has been scammed into thinking that giant winery brands are actually small boutique wineries. The 3-tier distribution system would rather have things remain as they are, because giving more diverse choice increases their costs and the complexities of them doing business.
I used the Mic on my Note2, I was able to remove the lyrics, but the timing was off and there was a bit of a delay and there was echo. Sounded like when you call into a radio station and are on the air, but leave your own radio on while doing so.
So this is news??? So retailers are loosing their profitability due to transparency and competition, what of the tier in the industry that sells to the retail channel? Has anyone researched how their profitability has changed since 2003? Has there been such a drastic increase in the transparency and competition for the distribution channel that supplies the retailers?
