The red wine price in New England has surged and the season has begun in earnest.
But even with the increase, it’s not enough to put a dent in the soaring prices of some of New England’s favorite wines.
Red wine prices are now higher than they were in 2007, according to the Wine Institute.
A typical bottle of red wine in New York City costs about $10,000, and in Massachusetts, it costs $11,000.
“The price of red wines is way up.
It’s not really competitive in New Hampshire,” said Robert Schumann, a New Hampshire-based wine critic and the author of the Red Wine: A History.”
Red wines are not really on the market in New Hampshirites.”
The red wine industry in the state has also taken a hit.
A new state law, passed in May, prohibits the sale of all wine in the commonwealth.
The state’s wine commissioner has told consumers that they must pay more for red wines, and many people are upset.
“I have been told that we are no longer in the red wine world,” said Sarah Schoenfield, an associate professor of sociology at the University of Vermont.
“It is not really the case.”
Schoenfield said there’s no denying that the prices are going up.
But she said she thinks New Hampshire is doing a better job of protecting the industry than other states.
“You don’t have to be an expert to tell you that New Hampshire has a great wine industry,” Schoenfields said.
“You can find good wine in other places.”
The wine industry is facing its own challenges.
Many restaurants are no-till-farmed, meaning they do not allow the use of a tractor, which can lead to some vineyard issues.
Schoenforgeda has said that most of the wine he produces comes from the farms of local farmers.
New Hampshire also has one of the highest rates of obesity in the country, according a new study by the University at Buffalo.
Schonfarms have made strides in reducing those numbers in recent years.
