ID: 17873597971535436 If you didnt know, wild agave Tobala is one of the most prized of all agaves and is often called the King of Agaves in Mexico. Why? Because it only grows wild, is extremely rare, and it takes 12-15 years to fully mature. Now let me tell you, the resulting spirit is intensely aromatic, unique, extremely rare and crazy good!
Del Que Toma el Cardenal or The One the Priest Drinks Tobala Silvestre - This delicious Priest Juice Tobala has a buttery nose with hints of salty aromas. Very sweet on the palate with notes of mango, burnt tangerine, caramelized sugar and spice, with a long, extra smooth finish. Like I said before, this is crazy good!
Thanks @56wine for highlighting such a treat!

Take action to protect our industry: you can contact your representative until Jan 13 (that's next Monday!), whether you are consumer, business owner or fellow importer/distributor. The 101 on how to do that in each case is on our website - link in bio.

ID: 18088407997083190 CALLING ALL DOMESTIC WINE AND SPIRITS PRODUCERS!!! A gang of us wine folks cinched up our neckties and spent the last two days at the US Trade Representative's office in DC making the case that tariffs on wine and spirits from the EU are a fundamental threat to the ENTIRE US beverage industry. We turned out in force -- no less than 22 panelists testified from the wine business--and said our piece. Still, let's not pat ourselves on the back just yet... The questions from the USTR committee made it clear that they didn't understand how the three-tier system works, and they didn't understand that harm to importers and wholesalers would be profoundly detrimental to domestic producers, too. Two thirds of the wine sold in the US is homegrown and, if severe tariffs lead to increased consolidation (or failure!) of wholesalers, an inordinate amount of losses and unpaid bills will accrue to domestic producers! We're all in the same boat, gang. And there is still time to make your voice heard. Go to regulations.gov, search USTR-2019-0003 & USTR-2019-0009 --THERE ARE TWO SEPARATE ACTIONS BEING CONSIDERED--and tell the US Trade Representative how any tariffs on wine and spirits from the EU represent a threat to the entire $68 billion wine industry. The deadline is right around the corner and thoughtful comments matter.
And thanks to all who made the effort to speak up in person this week, especially those who came from afar (or slept on a couch in Delaware) to make it all possible: @tribecawine @christy.frank.wine @dfbowler @bourget_imports @peterweygandt @geoffroyducroux @cuttingedgeselections @chambersstwines @fassselectionswine @marytaylorwine @devenishwines (with a little help from @zev_rovine) @tim_gagnon_ @jenny.lefcourt @vintuswines @zachys @barkleystuart @sokolin @champagnelaurentperrier @wine_com @bnpdistributing

See you tonight for a tariff awareness tasting!
The headlines keep coming... TONIGHT 6-8 WE HOST: TARIFF AWARENESS TASTING; lots of information straight from the people it will affect the most, and lots of wine to taste. The White House is pushing to take the tariffs on European wine to 100%. Imagine every wine you buy cost twice as much! We dont want to see what it would be like if our cheapest Chianti cost $28. And we also dont want to pay that much for a simple glass of wine at a restaurant.
We know there are worse problems in this country and in this world @australia #puertorico #iran to name just a few, but this one would be crushing not only for us but likely fatal for a lot of the small importers we work with and the tiny, family producers they represent. The industrial producers and mega-stores will have an easier time of it, but thats not the kind of wine you drink and its not the kind we sell.
This is the theme at this weeks tasting. Please join us tonight at Dandelion with Gab Bowler of Bowler Wine @bowlerwine Michael Foulk of MFW @mfwwineco Whitney Schubert @whitneyschubert of Polaner Selections @polanerselections , Dan Weber @dmweber of Schatzi Wines @schatziwines Nick Africano @nickafricano of Jose Pastor Selections @jpselections , and Nils Paulson @nepaulito of Martines Wines @martineswines
Well have lots of information and take-homes up front, and of course lots of wine in back to taste! #drinkwine #savewine #savejobs #stopthetariffs #saynotowinetariffs #dandylovesyou

#oped In recent weeks weve all been scrambling to avoid disaster. We are sending emails and letters to clients, begging them to call their representatives in Congress. We are fighting not just to be able to drink European wine; we are fighting for our livelihoods and for our hundreds of thousands of employees.
Our leader @jenny.lefcourt explains the insanity & repercussions of tariffs in her @nytimes op-ed.

PLEASE READ: The US Trade Representative has now proposed 100% TARIFFS on ALL WINE from Europe. WE NEED YOUR HELP. They have given until January 12 to let your voices be heard. SEE THE LINK IN MY PROFILE TO EASILY CONTACT. Writing the US Trade Rep is CRITICAL. There are 46,000+ US wine retailers-mostly small family businesses-employing 200,000 people. Another 100,000 US jobs in wine wholesale. Estimates are up to 75,000 American jobs lost. There are companies who wouldnt last 30 days! Dont wait! Tell the US Trade Representative what you think! And contact your congresspeople and tell them to do the same! Please click on link in my bio for simple instructions and accurate links to the appropriate comment portals for the US government. THANK YOU! And spread the message!!
