Oppose Tariffs on Imported Wine from the E.U.

/ December 24, 2019

Chambers & Chambers proudly represents many producers from all throughout Europe and has been doing so since 1973. With the risk of tariffs rising to 100%, the already stifling current issue at hand of tariffs would now be affecting more regions as well as sparkling wines.

One of its best-kept secrets, though, is the still red wines that hail from there. Tintilla is beloved for its mineral-driven, chalky flavors with decadently ripen black fruits. This wine is an...read more

/ October 8, 2019

We need to do our best to stop the US Trade Department proposed 25% tariffs on wine imports from France, Spain, and Germany. This is not the answer to EU aircraft subsidies. This new policy is punitive towards US wine importers, retailers, restaurants and ultimately the American wine drinker.
