Brexit with Miles Beale from the WSTA Part 1
This show was published 02 June 2017
Miles Beale is Chief Executive of the WSTA (Wine & Spirit Association). We caught up with him at the London Wine Fair to discuss the potential impact of Brexit on the wine industry.
We talk about the current tariffs in Europe for wine and what it would mean for the UK should we take the 'No deal is better than a bad deal' approach and trade under WTO rules. We also look at some of the opportunities that may exist under Brexit. The UK is the second biggest importer of wine in the world by volume and value and half of wine imports come from Europe.
The UK Wine Show is sponsored by ThirtyFifty. Our team of wine tasters are busy entertaining and educating UK consumers to help them get the most out of wine.
The music used for the UK Wine Show is Griffes de Jingle 1 by Marcel de la Jartèle and Silence by Etoile Noire.
