My Latest Panel Discussion:
Circle of Wine Writers
“Brexit: State of Play”
I recently moderated an all-star panel discussion for Circle of Wine Writers on “Brexit: State of Play.”
The panel discussion stemmed from my recent 2-part series in Meininger’s Wine Business International on the impacts of Brexit upon importers, retailers, and producers.
In contrast, the CWW panel discussion showcases the impact of Brexit upon consumers.
