Venture investments in wine - 2019 gets started: Top 48 total approaches $1 Bil - + Vinebox & Wine.com update

The totat investment in the top 48 U.S.-based wine companies has hit at least $924.4 million. I say "at least" because these are just the numbers I can confirm. The industry's propensity to hide every investment like a dog buries a bone means that the total is most likely greater than $1 billion.


Top 48? Why not 50, or 100?

After working for Dow-Jones, WallStreetJournal.com, MarketWatch, and enjoying a high-energy luge ride with Jim Cramer as one of his original columnists for TheStreet.Com, I learned you need to draw a line somewhere or risk spending effort in places of little significance.

When I began this series of articles in 2018, I set that lower limit at $1 million. When I was doing technology investments, that amount was significantly higher: usually a bottom limit of $10 million.

Every article that contains premium content will usually be the top link in the daily News Fetch unless some monumental news bumps it to #2.

Why 2 billing systems?

Because our billing company of the past nine years was bought by a company that does not accept American Express, we have had to change our subscription process, and the method of accessing premium content. (Here’s more about that.)
