It’s 1 week after Unified Symposium (Ha!) and what’s the word?… BULK WINE! Bulk sales are brisk. Bulk sales activity in December & January were the hottest we’ve seen in the last 10 years. Aromatic whites, especially Muscats and 2019 Petite Sirah were the hot sellers. Bulk activity foretells the coming grape market. With all of the insecurity over the 2020 vintage, there is a “hole” in our supply. The market is on the uptick. 2018 bulk is disappearing quick. Producers are holding on to most of the 2019s and being very choosey about which 2020s to retain or bulk away. Agajanian still has some excellent 2019 bulk wines available and especially 2020s with very low smoke #s. Get a jump on the market!
