Wine Sales Growth Steady as Uncertain Market Looms

May 20, 2019

The latest Wine Industry Metrics in the May edition of the Wine Analytics Report indicate that U.S. wine sales increased 7% in April versus a year earlier to $3.8 billion, while sales in the latest 12 months increased 3% to nearly $48 billion. The data, supplied by market research firm bw166, indicates that bulk imports have pulled back, becoming a smaller component of domestic sales. This, in turn, has made domestic table wines the driver of sales growth.
