Wine Spectator Presents: The Changing World of Wine Retail in the US
For many years after the Repeal of Prohibition, the wine retail business in the US was dominated by small family-owned stores. In the past two decades, everything has changed. While family businesses continue to thrive, changing legal and regulatory structures; the entry of grocery stores and other chains into the business; and the rise of the internet have revolutionized the way wine is sold. Four retail leaders reflect on the past and peer into the future.
