One of the side gigs I have run across lately is in the wine industry. According to Forbes, US wine consumption has grown from a volume consumption of 370 million gallons in 1993 to a current level of over 770 million gallons. In 2017, $40 BILLION dollars was spent in wine sales. That’s a lot of wine!
Like everything else, the wine industry has been impacted by changes in demographics, technology, and budgets. It’s not necessary to travel to France anymore to get high quality French wines.
