Global Corporations Behind California Wine

Dienstag 22. Dezember 2009 von htm

Marin Institute unveiled a new report from the steps of the Wine Institute in San Francisco titled, „The Myth of the Family Winery: Global Corporations Behind California Wine.“ Marin Institute symbolically renamed the trade association the ‚Big Alcohol Institute,‘ pointing out that it is a tool of Big Alcohol that perpetuates the image of California wineries as small, local, and family-owned. In fact, 7 California wine corporations own 82 percent of the wine sold in the U.S., and 6 of them are global conglomerates who, together with the Wine Institute, work to defeat critical public health policies such as AB 1019.
