Today TastedOnline.com is celebrating it’s seventh anniversary and again during the past year we posted more than 150 new wine reviews. This year we spent a few weeks in Paris and on a Rhone valley riverboat cruise (see Free wine on a river cruise: what you need to know) and there are many reviews of wines we purchased as we traveled.

The Office of United States Trade Representative in a dispute between Airbus and Boeing has requested comments on proposed tariffs to be placed on many products currently being imported into the United States from European countries. This proposal includes up to 100% additional tariffs on bottles of European wine.

The Federal Rulemaking comment period for these additional tariffs is open until January 13, 2020. Comments can be submitted using traditional mail or electronic submissions. Since this rulemaking is so critical to American jobs and healthy price competitiveness of wine, TastedOnline.com strongly encourages every wine drinker and everyone connected to the wine industry to voice their concerns about this flagrant proposed European wine tariff.

Electronic comments can be submitted directly and easily at: https://www.regulations.gov/comment?D=USTR-2019-0003-2518.
