(3BL Media/Justmeans) – A UK survey reveals that 55 percent of 18-34 year olds, also known as Millennials, are switching brand loyalty, which should be a focus for businesses this holiday season during the battle for festive spending. Surprisingly, this group is not really bothered about a cool app, website or social media presence for a brand. Instead, they are focused on product quality, availability and the environmental/ethical profile of the brands they choose to spend money on.

Data shows steep drops in production in most of the southern hemisphere, particularly Chile and Argentina. Climate change is causing harvest time to be pushed back further as hot spells last longer and longer. This means crops are more likely to die or be damaged. The International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV) has estimated...
