THE US ADMINISTRATION IS PROPOSING A 100% TARRIF
ON WINES FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION.  
IF THIS TARRIF PASSES, AVANT-GARDE WINE & SPIRITS WILL
CEASE TO OPERATE. 
THIS FAMILY COMPANY THAT MY WIFE AND I BUILT
WILL BE WIPED OUT BY ONE GOVERNMENT DECISION. 
INDUSTRY FRIENDS ACROSS THE U.S. FROM RESTAURANTS
TO IMPORTERS, DISTRIBUTORS AND RETAILERS ARE
ALL THREATENED BY THIS IMMINENT DECISION.
THIS WILL BE DISASTROUS.
