TOO MUCH WINE MALE.
The Growers of California Said to Be Carrying Very Large Stocks. Storage Facilities Taxed to Their Utmost Capaoity in the State. No Chanes to Get Rid of the Produot --Zves a High Tariff Cannot save It. The outlook for the wine growers of Cali fornia in the approacohing vintage season is alarmingly unfavorable, says a Man Fran eisco dispatch to the New York Times. Thire t a big surplus of native wines in the cellars of the wholesale firms in this city, enough to supply the export market and home demand for six months or more, and the producers in all parts of the state have thbtr orage faocilities exhausted, with no opportunity of selling at anything like prfit, and fbe of them can afford, in the face of the existing oonditions, to provide new cooperage. For four years the market has been run ning down. Grapeswhieh were readily sold at $80 a ton and made into wine that brought 30 and 35 cents a gallon were easily obtainable last year at $9 and $10 a ton, and the dealers would have considered themselves fortunate to get 15 oents a gallon for the wine. This year promises an even worse condition. The annual consumption of California wines in the United States is from 16,000. 000 to 17,000,000 gallons as based on statis tics for the last three years. The amount used in this state alone is about 6,000,000 galoeas. New York, the eastern distribut ing center, takes from 4,000,000 to 5,000,000 gallons; New Orleans the same, and the re mainder goes to the comparatively new market of Chicago. Against this demand the San Francisco dealers have nearly 12,000,000 gallons stored in their vaults, and it is estimated that the producers have from 50,000,000 to 60,000.000 gallons on, hand, and are making from 20,. 000,000 to 25.000,000 gallons each year. At 20 cents a gallon, a low figure for ordinary sales, this would represent iron $12,400,000 to $14.400,000 locked up in the wine casks of California. During the four years the growers have received little or no income from their business, and unless they can get at some of the money represented in their storage of stook, there will be many failures before the grapes of 1892 are pressed. One of the extensive grower, Charles A. Wetmore, of Livermore Valley, has already been forced to assign because on a stock valued at $55,000 he could not realize enough to keep up an indebtedness of less than $25,000. Mr. Wetmore is secretary of the State Vitieultural society. The fact, as admitted by the growers themselves, is that the industry has been almost ruined by the putting of bad wines on the market. Vineyardists, often ex perienced in even the growing of grapes, have gone to winemaking to secure the profit that their vines would not othe:wire bring, and they not only produce an inferior wine, but allow it to sour through ignorance of the art of preser vation. They make wine and attempt to keep it as a New England farmer makes eider and barrels it up. When they find that the stock is souring they sell it for whatever they can get, and it is rushed overland and sold for the ordinary California wine. The result is the ruin of the Industry, and it has brought the trowers to a point where the dealers will not take their wine at the price of production. California wines that were recently sold in New York b: ought 18 cents a gallon for 1.000 barrels, with the freight of 10 cento a gallon paid by the seller. M. M. Estee, the republican politician, is the most widely known of the American wine giowers, and is one of the beat local authorities on the industry. He has large vineyards in the Napa region and controls one of the biggest wineries in that valley. Mr. Estee admitted to a Times represen tative the other day that the industry was not sor, good as it had been and that "it is rather running down if anything." The trouble, he declared, has been with the pro duoers and dealers principally. The gow- I ers have not made as eood wine as they I should have made, said he, and the dealere have failed to su-tain the market. Mr. Eatee said he thought the fifty-cent tariff was just about right, and that he would have it neither more nor less, but he did not explain why it had not relieved the dealers of the surplus stock of rood wines. C. Ca pv & Co., a well-known firm of pro ducers, insist that the American r eople will never consume the wine that California can produce and that there must be an opening for the product in foreign countries. They not only declare t hat the tariff is unneces sary for the protection of the industry in this country, but that they are willing to compete for the trade in even France and Spain if traffic is free and open. "YVe have to sell our wines as cheaply as we would have to under any conditions," said a ieeur ber of the firm, "and all that the tariff does Is to enable the New York dealers to put t French labels on the California producte and sell it at the rates of imported wines." The California Wine Growers' union de clare that the rineyardists have been losing money for four years, but it hopes that a 1 better condition will result from a general prosperity of the peonleo if the coming presi dential campaign results in a change of ad ministration. President P. C. Rossi, of t:e Italian-Swios colony, producing annually an immense amount of wine in ionoma county, saver that the business has been going from bad to worse for four years, and that there is no solution of the difficulty in sight. The colony has continued in exlstence only bv putting lapents on the road and selling directly to retailers. Millions of dollars are Invested in Cali fornia wine growing and the prospects of general failure are very serious. It is sig nificant that all the producers speak hope fully of a short grape crop.
