Trump Wine is for Losers
Sorry about the headline. It was an attempt at sarcasm about Donald Trump, which is impossible.
Recently, the media has raised questions about the legitimacy of Trump’s Virginia Winery. (See the link to today’s Daily Beast article below.)
On July 21st, 2o15, I was in Charlottesville, Virginia on the start of a tour of the area’s wineries.
During breakfast that morning, Donald Trump came on the air and blasted John Mc Cain for being captured in Vietnam. My first thought upon hearing this insult was, “That’s the end of Donald Trump as a presidential candidate.”
But that was hundreds of insults ago, and he’s still in the race. As for the veracity of Donald’s winery, several wine producers in the Shenandoah Valley told me that they buy grapes from Trump’s vineyard. Several winery sources also said he was the largest grape grower in Virginia.
Trump licenses his name to all kinds of products, including wine. Why would anyone be shocked by this revelation? If Trump even tangentially supports wine grape production in Virginia, that’s a good thing, in my opinion.
If Trump is elected, alcohol consumption should go way up. But I don’t plan on ever buying his wine.
