The following articles have now been posted to our sister website, Alca Intelligence. They provide updated and more detailed analysis and thoughts on the possible consequences for the wine sector from the COVID19 pandemic. The articles include many references to other media sources that I have found to be authoritative and useful. I hope that these articles will be helpful for wine industry businesses in formulating ideas and planning for the months ahead.
- COVID19: Predictions and Analysis – Is an updated and more detailed version of an article originally posted on WineLaw.ca. Now provides more specific information on the potential length and type of ongoing restrictions and how they may affect the industry.
- COVID19: Restrictions Affecting the BC Wine Industry – Provides a listing of and links to the relevant provincial orders and policy changes that are currently affecting the wine industry in British Columbia.
- COVID19 Statistics: Comparisons to Other Jurisdictions – Ongoing and updated statistics on how the various West Coast wine jurisdictions are doing in the battle against the pandemic including comparisons to other places worldwide.
All of these articles are part of our sister website which normally provides subscription-based compliance information for the wine industry (relating to interprovincial shipping, licensing, marketing and the Agricultural Land Commission). However, all COVID19-related articles are accessible free of charge (no subscription needed).
