Red wine.You may have noticed that the price of wine, whiskey and other alcohol products from Europe have been higher lately. This is the result of a 25% tariff imposed by the Trump administration beginning in 2019, based on a dispute with the European Union over government subsidies to the aircraft industry. U.S. importers of alcoholic beverages, along with distributors, retailers, restaurants and consumers, all paid more as a result.

On June 15, 2021, the United States and European Union agreed to a framework to end the trade dispute.
