The Millennials are changing the way we think about a lot of things, including the wine world.  They are much more open to try new things than their Baby Boomer parents, which gives new producers and more obscure grapes a whole new market.  

We talked about all this and more with the World Wine Guys, Mike DeSimone and Jeff Jenssen, and co-authors of the recent book Red Wine: The Comprehensive Guide to the 50 Essential Varieties & Styles.

Because even in the wine world, there is consolidation.  The likes of Constellation Brands (STZ) - Get Report , an AAP portfolio holding and Diageo (DEO) - Get Report are scooping up a ton of smaller producers.  

And even tax form has hit the wine world.  Meals and entertainments used to be deductible.  But no longer under the new tax plan -- so how will that affect wine sales?

So watch the video above but be sure to listen to our full podcast for answers to all those questions and more!
