Break Out The Tumblers, The Price Of Wine Is Dropping Fast

(CNN) — Let’s raise our tumblers and toast to cheaper wine. The price of wine is expected to drop to its lowest levels in five years thanks, in part, to a surplus of California grapes. Combined with a decreased demand for wine, drinkers can expect to get better value for every drop they drink this year. The cheaper prices may even last up to three years. Rob McMillan, founder of Silicon Valley Bank’s Wine Division and author of the annual State of the Wine Industry report, predicts US wine consu...

I stopped with a friend for a glass of wine in this charming café. The exterior. It was a bit chilly outside but I guess if you have to smoke, why not? A sign inside which means the prices bring you in but the quality keeps you there. It was hanging on a coat rack. My glass of white wine being poured. It was nice to have glass to look through and see the architecture outside, not to mention the blue sky.
