Why it’s so hard for wines from other countries to make it in America

“I just got back from (pick a country) where we had this fabulous wine. I asked for it at my favorite wine shop, but they said it wasn’t available here. What’s up with that?” We hear ya! The problem is, the U.S. is the largest wine market in the world, but also the most difficult for brands to break into. That’s because after Prohibition, the Federal Government put in place a structure to control and regulate wines and spirits to make sure guys like Al Capone stay out of the business.
