Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI Radio in New York
“Are you a fan of Whispering Angel rosé? Or for that matter, any Provençal rosé? What about Chianti? Or Côtes du Rhône? Do you drink Spanish wines—Rioja, Albariño, Priorat, Cava? Barolo? Barbaresco? How about Prosecco? Would you like to pay 100 percent more for them in 2020? Or perhaps not even be able to find them for sale at all?” read the opening passages of Food & Wine Executive Wine Editor Ray Isle’s latest article “Why 2020 Is Looking Dangerous for Wine Lovers.” In this installment of Leonard Lopate at Large on WBAI, Ray describes the devastating effect on the European wine market in America that a new round of tariffs could have in 2020.
