It’s Too Easy To Be Callous
It really is too easy to be callous.
A couple days ago I posted, "Consolidation, who cares?", in which I made the point that even though more and more wineries are being snapped up by larger drink companies, we wine lovers would never have a problem finding small, quality oriented wines from artisan producers. There are just so many good ones.
While this is true, it’s a point that pales in comparison to the point made by a headline from the Los Angeles times: "Constellation Brands to Eliminate 300 Jobs".
These are all Mondavi-related jobs. Jobs held by mothers and fathers, wage earners supporting families. Yet, we can still get our fine Pinot elsewhere.
Consolidation…a lot of people care.
