a tale of two wine stars

In this issue, we track progress for two of the wine world’s most famous stars: Bordeaux and Australia. In Bordeaux’s case, the export market became overheated about a decade ago—mainly due to inflated demand in China. After that boom fizzled, it took a while for Bordeaux to shake the hangover. In the meantime, millennials in the U.S. moved on to other drinks categories, and a generation was in danger of being lost forever. But Bordeaux is a cyclical business that always bounces back, and right now it’s quietly experiencing a remarkable growth run in the U.S. market. By volume, Bordeaux imports into the U.S. are more than 40% higher than they were a decade ago, and the category is up more than 50% by value. It’s true that today’s en…

Constellation Positioned To Sell Off Wine Brands…. Last fall, multiple reports surfaced that Constellation Brands is exploring a selloff of several wine labels—among them Clos du Bois, Cook’s, Arbor Mist, and Mark West—as it looks to premiumize its portfolio.

From a volume perspective, Arbor Mist, Cook’s, and Clos du Bois are among the largest brands in the portfolio, but only Clos du Bois retails at above the $10 mark, where the drinks…

San Diego: City Welcomes French-Themed, Post-Prohibition-Era Bar San Diego’s historic U.S. Grant Hotel brought back a classic in late October with the unveiling of Rendezvous, a French-themed, post-Prohibition-era bar that has been reimagined. The new bar honors its long-lost predecessor, Rendezvous, The Wonder Bar, which opened in 1933—the year Prohibition was repealed—in the same spot. The modern iteration takes many cues from the original, from vintage décor to sofa-style seating and communal tables. A roaming cocktail cart serves tableside drinks like the traditional Manhattan and Vieux Carré, as well as the Golden Rooster, which mixes Bastille 1789 single malt whisky, Green Chartreuse liqueur, Hardy Le Coq d’Or Pineau des Charentes, and Bittermens TransAtlantic bitters (drinks from the cart are $16). Standard bar-front cocktail service and largeformat punches are also available (cocktails…
