"For me, DTT was just a memory at this point. Something I fondly remember as a possibility that might return some day in the future. Imagine my surprise when I got a text from a friend saying, “Paul, DTT is back. Check out this new company called LibDib.” I won’t lie, I was skeptical knowing all the major pitfalls and challenges associated with the channel. But I checked out the site, followed their Twitter, and realized that while their methodology was divergent from the previous incarnation, their vision was exactly right: giving producers access to the market".

Amazon buys the retail chain Whole Foods. After several fails in launching wine ventures, Amazon now poses itself as a key player for wine industry. Or not?
What is astounding is that natural wine is the only segment of the massive natural food market that has carved out an authentic consumer definition without certification, without governmental control, without a governing body of any sort.
The inspiring creativity of the winemakers themselves within this segment, the support of an ever-growing and aware consumer market, and a global supply chain of producers, importers, shops, restaurants, bars, bloggers and super enthusiasts have come together to make this so. This change could only happen from a bottoms up market-driven movement, not one mandated top down by legislating bodies.

☆ Wine Lister - the holistic new standard in wine rating systems - has this interesting post about investing in fine wines in a post-Brexit financial scenario:
In a new climate of Brexit-induced uncertainty, with volatile fund performance and some economists forecasting recession, can fine wine offer some shelter? Research has consistently shown that wine has weak correlation with traditional financial assets, and can therefore be a useful diversification tool. Moreover, returns have been attractive historically, and less risky.
