With the economic downturn and political chaos, as well as the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, it is dicult to foresee the future, but this year we will move forward step-by-step, watching our feet carefully to make sure where we tread.With the wildres that have swept across Australia since the beginning of summer, we asked local contacts in Australia about the impact of the wildres on wineries and production.

They shared with us very interesting insights into their journeys as they followed dierent paths over 50 years to becoming premium brands in the Valley, and the challenges of building and maintaining their wineries as the valley production becomes more corporate.Our story on ‘Alcohol Content on Wine Labels’ looks at wine and alcohol from a slightly dierent perspective, shining a light on the considerations that impact the number displayed on the bottle labels, and the societal and liquor tax law implications that determine it.On 20 January, we launched the ‘Plumm Rental’ website (www.plumm-glass.jp) for our Plumm wine glass rental service. We continue to work on developing this easy-to-use website while xing minor bugs. It features a rich line-up of premium crystal glasses, as well as enabling the smooth order and delivery of glasses ready for use (washed and polished), that can be returned without any washing. Please take a look to see how simple ordering wine glasses and decanters for any occasion has become. The website is in Japanese only, but google translate, does a very good job in English.Village Cellars
