Total wine sales grew in most price points in the 4 weeks ending March 6, with the largest growth in the over $20 price segment, which increased 12.6 percent. This is significant as wines in the price category were declining for most of 2009. Wines in the $9 to $11.99 and $12 to $14.99 price segments also showed strong growth. In the 4 weeks ending March 6, wines retailing for $9 to $11.99 increased in sales 9.1 percent and $12 to $14.99 increased 9.7 percent.
