Improrting Wine from Argentina
Focus on costs for Argentina’s wine exports. Production costs, pricing, U.S. tariffs.
If you are a citizen of New York, New Jersey, California, Texas or Florida, and you have purchased a bottle of Cabernet by a vintner called Bodegas Escortihuela, then you are about to experience a fine Cabernet similar to that produced in California’s Napa Valley or New York. In some stores, the wine is stocked in the premium sections, which would surprise a native from Argentina, since that is one of the nation’s dependable wines, usually consumed by the lower classes who purchase the wine for the equivalent of US $1.50. Why, then, is that bottle you have before you selling for $18 to $24 in the U.S.? This paper will try to answer that question.
