Rob is Executive Vice President of Silicon Valley Bank's Wine Division, and he is well known for his annual State of the Wine Industry presentations.
So much has changed since he gave his last presentation in January that I thought it was time for an update.
Rob and I talk about the trends we see already, such as wine shipments and certain types of retail sales being up, as well as the impact of the disastrous situation for restaurants. We also talk about the availability of labor, and whether many wineries will be sale when this pandemic finally eases.
I have more of these conversations recorded so you might want to subscribe to my Youtube channel.
Take it away, Rob! Your background is nicer than mine. (That probably is true on multiple levels.)
