Retaliatory Tariffs

The U.S. wine industry has long supported the position that wine should not be targeted in trade disputes unrelated to wine. Wine is a high profile, highly value-added agricultural product and this sometimes makes it an attractive target in disputes. Unfortunately, wine is once again caught up in ongoing trade tensions between the U.S and China and the European Union which have resulted in wine being targeted with retaliatory tariffs once again.

Wine Institute strongly advocates for the removal of wine from all trade retaliation lists regardless of the market. Retaliatory tariffs like those currently in place invariably harm U.S. wine producers and impede the growth of the wine industry.
