This includes developments affecting the supply and demand for wine, as well as manufacturing and transport costs.

Our aim is to launch this as a subscription service in September 2022. We will be updating the website on a trial basis over the next couple of months, and hoping to build enough interest and readers to launch a Beta version in April.
