The remaining sales derive from consumers visiting Frog’s Leap’s winery (Gilinsky, 150). During the 2009 to 2010 recession, Frog’s Leap faired out well in accordance to historical financial ratios (See Exhibit 3) and similar sized wineries during the FY 2009 to 2010 as illustrated in Exhibit 6 (Gilinsky, 163). Since 1999, premium wineries in the North Coast have increased from 329 to 1250 (Gilinsky 145 – 146). In the past decade, 25 to 44 year olds have emerged as the largest segment of wine consumers, replacing Baby-Boomers who led most of the industry’s growth in the past 30 years (Gilinsky 147). The industry is in a stage of market saturation, causing financial difficulties as wineries are facing downward pressure on prices and margins.

The demand for organic foods continues to be higher there than almost anywhere else in the United States. Five years ago, California accounted for 36% of organic sales in the United States, which was by far the most of any state. In 2015, California is still the leading produce in organic fruits and vegetables. The USDA claims that city-dwellers and those on the West Coast are the two demographics that are most likely to eat organic food (Billings, 2015).

This was caused partly by the high self-confidence of the top management which was too ensured that the position of GM is everlasting. This assumption was proven as incorrect. The market position of General Motors before 2009 was dominant in many, but after 2000 GM’s vehicle production was stagnating globally.
