Six things you probably don't know about wine

There are so many misconceptions about wine in the United States -- often perpetuated by the industry itself -- that the Wine Curmudgeon sometimes wonders how we can enjoy wine at all. Let's clear up six of the most common.

1. What's the average price of a bottle of wine sold in the U.S.? $6.22, reports Nielsen, tracking sales from March 2010 to March 2011. In fact, one out of every four bottles of wine sold costs less than $3. That percentage has fallen by about half over the past 20 years, but we are still -- overwhelmingly -- a country that appreciates cheap wine. Nine out of 10 bottles of wine sold in the U.S. cost less than $12.

2. How many Americans drink wine? Not enough. About 40 percent of Americans say they don't drink, a figure that has remained remarkably consistent for years. Meanwhile, 20 percent of Americans drink 91 percent of the wine sold in the U.S.

3. Where does the U.S. rank in per capita consumption of wine? 57th. Through 2009, Vatican City was first at 70 liters per person, which is about 8 cases. France, at 45 liters per person, is the leading major country. The U.S. is at 9 liters per person, about 12 bottles a year -- a number that has not changed much since 1980. More of us enjoy wine, but most of us, despite the hype over the last couple of years, aren't all that interested. Even though French consumption has fallen by a quarter over the past decade, the average Frenchman still drinks five times more wine than we do.

4. What's the most popular wine in the U.S.? Chardonnay, by about 5 to 3, over cabernet sauvignon, says the same Nielsen study. One out of every five bottles of wine sold in the U.S. is chardonnay. However, this is marked changed from the last decade, when chardonnay outsold cabernet by as much as 2 to 1. Merlot is third, pinot grigio is fourth, and white zinfandel is fifth.

5. How long does the average American keep a bottle of wine? Not very long at all. As much as 90 percent of the wine bought in the U.S. is drunk within 24 hours, even though the Wine Magazines make it seem like buying wine to age is quite common. And, depending on the study, some 95 percent of all wine purchased in the U.S. is consumed within a week.

6. How important are the biggest wine companies? Hugely important. Fewer than two percent of U.S. wineries account for 84 percent of all wine production. Most wineries, whether in California or not, are small -- about six in 10 make less than 4,200 cases a year. The company that owns Kendall-Jackson, on the other hand, makes more than 5 million cases a year. And it's not even the biggest.

Vinexpo hails international visitor growth
2nd July, 2013 by Gabriel Savage

Final figures from Vinexpo showed a record 38% of non-French participants, with Chinese visitors proving particularly prominent in keeping with the fair’s global consumption growth predictions.

Total attendance at the five-day biennial fair reached 48,858 visitors from 148 countries, marking a 1.5% increase on 2011, although the number of non-French attendees rose by 3%.

Of these, by far the best-represented country was China, which supplied 3,388 drinks trade representatives, a 13.9% increase on its participation in 2011. Also well-represented was Japan, which sent 17.6% more visitors than two years ago with 427 visitors.

The fair’s efforts to attract a strong Asian following led to significant increases from other parts of the continent, with 32.7% more visitors from India, 20.4% more from Vietnam and 21.1% more from Malaysia.

Despite this strong growth in Asian participation, the US had the second largest visitor presence at Vinexpo, with 1,433 representatives. Following close behind was the UK, with 1,418 visitors, Belgium with 1,132 and Germany with 1,073.

Among the countries showing the sharpest increase in visitor numbers were Canada, which saw an 11.9% uplift, and Russia, which sent 9.8% more visitors.

Meanwhile French visitor levels remained stable, representing 62.2% of total attendance.

Vinexpo CEO Robert Beynat, who will now step down to focus on the organisation’s growing Asian fair schedule, noted that these figures correlate with earlier forecasts about world markets.

“Between 2012 and 2016, wine consumption will grow by 145 million 9-litre cases worldwide, an increase of 5.31%,” he predicted.

“Three markets in particular will drive this growth: the US with an extra 40.5 million cases, China, up 70.5 million cases and Russia with a further 17.4 million cases.”

In order to cater for this growing significance of the Asian markets, next year will see Vinexpo host fairs in Hong Kong (27-29 May), Beijing (2-3 June) and Tokyo (1-2 November).

NEWSFLASH - PORTS STRIKES AT US EAST AND GULF PORTS ARE AVERTED - ILA, USMX reach tentative agreement on 6-year contract.

The International Longshoremen's Association and U.S. Maritime Alliance have reached a tentative agreement for a new six-year master contract.
George H. Cohen, director of the U.S. Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, which had been assisting the two sides in contract talks said "the tentative agreement is subject to the ratification procedures of both parties and, as well, to agreements being achieved in a number of local union negotiations."
In a press release issued late Friday night, Cohen said "Those local negotiations are ongoing and will continue without interruption to any port operation. Out of respect for the parties’ ratification processes, and consistent with the Agency’s long-standing confidentiality policy, we will not disclose any details concerning the substantive provisions that have been reached.”
The current contract between the ILA and its employers represented by USMX was originally due to expire Sept. 30, but was twice extended, first to late December, and then to next Wednesday, Feb. 6.

The ILA-USMX master contract covers more than 14,500 ILA members who handle containerized cargoes in 14 U.S. East and Gulf coast ports.
Shippers expressed some relief with the progress of the talks, but want the ILA and USMX to press forward to a final contract to prevent any port disruptions.
“We urge the parties to quickly complete any outstanding negotiations, including local negotiations at each of the individual 14 ports, and quickly ratify the new labor agreement," said National Retail Federation President and Chief Executive Officer Matthew Shay in a statement Saturday morning.
“If the tentative agreement holds, the new labor contract will bring much-needed certainty and predictability to the supply chain for retailers, manufacturers, farmers and other industries that rely on the ports to move the nation’s commerce and trade," he added. - Chris Dupin

ILA, USMX to resume contract talks | AS Daily Newsletter | AS Daily | American Shipper

ILA - USMX contract talks update
The International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) and U.S. Maritime Alliance are expected to resume contract negotiations this week with the assistance of the U.S. Federal Mediation and Concilliation Service, after a week of talks between the union and local employers about issues in individual ports.
Sources say little headway was made last week in talks with the New York Shipping Association where employers are attempting to bring costs and productivity more in line with other U.S. East and Gulf coast ports.
The master contract on the handling of containerized cargo at 14 ports expires next Wedneday on Feb. 6. Originally scheduled to expire last Sept. 30, the contract has been extended twice by the ILA and USMX as they try to forge a new labor pact.
"Negotiations are not going particularly well right now," another source told American Shipper late last week. "It is not that they are going that bad, it is just that it is kind of stuck in neutral and we are running out of daylight.
"I'm not very optimistic of the deal getting done by Feb. 6. So we may have another extension. And there may be some sort of work stoppage as well. But right now I think it is a jump ball," the source added, saying the negotiations this week with USMX "should be clarifying." - Chris Dupin

U.S. Wine Exports Hit Record High

U.S. wine exports, 90 percent from California, reached a new record of $1.39 billion in winery revenues in 2011, an increase of 21.7 percent compared to 2010. Volume shipments were up 5.8 percent to 455.7 million liters or 50.6 million nine-liter cases. Thirty-four percent of U.S. wine exports by value were shipped to the 27-member countries of the European Union, accounting for $478 million of the revenues, up 10% percent from 2010. Other top markets were: Canada, $379 million, up 23 percent; Hong Kong, $163 million, up 39 percent; Japan, $105 million, up 39 percent; and China, $62 million, up 42 percent.

"Three days of bargaining on a new contract by the International Longshoremen's Association and the U.S. Maritime Alliance (USMX) wound up on Thursday, with the U.S. Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Director George H. Cohen saying the two sides had "made progress" in their effort to negotiate a master contract for container cargo handled at 14 U.S. East and Gulf coast ports."

We still have hopes that the contract between the ILA and its employers that is set to expire Feb. 6. will be renewed soon indeed !!!!

GREAT NEWS !!!! Shipping Container "Cliff" is averted - Strikes are extended by 30 days !!!!

Please find attached press release by FMSC (FEDERAL MEDIATION AND CONCILIATION SERVICE).

“The parties have further agreed to an additional extension of 30 days (i.e., until midnight, January 28, 2013) during which time the
parties shall negotiate all remaining outstanding Master Agreement issues, including those
relating to New York and New Jersey. The negotiation schedule shall be set by the FMCS after
consultation with the parties.”

Please refer to the USMX website for further updates,

There might still be some sliver of HOPE that the impending US East Coast and Gulf Coast Strike could be averted. ILA, USMX agree to meet. “FMCS Director George Cohen has called a meeting of the ILA and the Maritime Alliance in advance of the December 29th expiration of the contract extension. The parties have agreed to attend. Due to the sensitive nature of the negotiations FMCS will have no additional comment at this time," was the brief statement released late Monday. We have our fingers crossed at GWL that all parties may find a compromise very soon as the economic implications for our clients and the direct consumer are much mor edevastating than a dispute on royalties.

ILA - USMX to discuss container royalties next week

UNION TALKS WILL RESUME NEXT WEEK DEC 18TH

Three days of negotiations between the International Longshoremen's Association and their employers ended on Wednesday without a labor agreement to replace the one that expires on Dec. 29.
The union said talks aimed a working out a new master contract with employers, represented by the U.S. Marit
ime Alliance (USMX), will resume next week on Dec. 18 in Newark, N.J., with the discussion focusing on container royalties, an assessment based on the weight of containerized cargo that amounted to a collective $211 million in 2011.
In a statement posted on its page, the ILA said "USMX is looking to return to a CAP on Container Royalty reducing the amount of money ILA members receive as a wage supplement. The ILA countered that the CAP was lifted by USMX as part of the agreement that brought about the current three-year contract that expires on Dec. 29th, 2012. ILA President Harold Daggett has vowed to keep the CAP unchanged to allow members to receive maximum container royalty payments."
The ILA said talks next week will involve a small negotiating team. This week the ILA had 200 wage-scale delegates come to Delray Beach, Fla. On Monday, those delegates authorized the ILA president to call a strike if the two sides are unable to come to agreement.
USMX did not respond to a request for a comment on Wednesday, but said it wants to cap royalty payments "and use the excess, not as savings for employers but to help pay for other benefits for ILA workers."
It said "Container royalties have morphed from an assessment imposed through arbitration in 1960 to what they are today – another form of compensation for ILA workers, who are among the nation’s most highly compensated. The vast majority of ILA workers were not alive when containerization was introduced in New York in the late 1950s. In fact, only 136 of the 3,281 ILA workers at the Port of New York and New Jersey today were working at the port in 1968, the year container royalties were first distributed." - Chris Dupin
