2018 statistics on American wine consumption

  • The average retail bottle sale in the U.S. is about $10;
  • What might be more telling is that sales of bottles in the $15-$19.99 range have increased over the past year by “double digits,” and
  • Sales of $8-and-under bottles have decreased.

That is to say, Americans are slowly but surely trading up. Nonetheless, Thach reminds us, $8-and-under bottles of wine (not including boxed wines) still make up 55% of all wines sold in the U.S. It may be a while before the average American attains an actual Napa Valley taste.

 

What is ullage in wine and should you worry?

4 Reasons Why Long Island Wine Has Never Been Better

By most measures, Long Island wine has never been better. I’m not saying that it’s all good — because it’s not. I’m also not saying that the worst stuff today is even half as good as the best wines from years past  — because it’s not.

How New Alcohol Tax Laws May Affect Your Business

The new laws expand the definition of “table wine” by raising the alcohol by volume (ABV) requirement from a maximum of 14% to 16%—a reflection, Kaiser says, of the way American wines, particularly in California, are made. The change represents a 50-cents-per-gallon savings for wines between 14% and 16% ABV. Now, says Kaiser, “you won’t see people manipulating their wine to get lower alcohol content just so they can pay less tax.”

Some thoughts on wine quality: an intrinsic or extrinsic property of a wine?

How do we define quality in a wine? Is it an intrinsic or extrinsic property of the wine? That is, is quality something that a wine possesses independent of the occasion of drinking, or the drinker, or not?

Considering Wine & Weed Events… Not So Fast

In California, elegant wine and weed dinners are becoming a popular trend and you might think that winery owners would be in an ideal position to host such events.

WHAT IS CINSAUT?

Some grapes are more finicky, requiring a light touch, a keen eye and the patience to not tear them out by the roots when they call it quits after a slight change in weather. Others, like the dark-skinned Cinsaut (or Cinsault), are workhorses, extremely tolerant to varying conditions and productive.

Ste. Michelle Wine Estates Sales Slip 6% For 2017

Washington state-based Ste. Michelle Wine Estates reported a 6.4% net revenue decline to $698 million for the year ended December 31. The winemaker’s shipment volumes were similarly soft, falling 8.6% to around 8.5 million cases, with parent company Altria citing negative impact from “competitive activity, continued trade inventory reductions and slower premium wine category growth.” The company’s full-year results were also hampered by a challenging fourth quarter, during which Ste. Michelle’s net revenues fell 8.5%, to $227 million, and shipments slipped 9.7% to around 2.8 million cases. According to Impact Databank, Ste. Michelle’s 14 Hands and Columbia Crest brands slowed from double-digit growth in 2016 to growth of 2.5% and 1% respectively last year.

Spirits Sales Rose 4% to $26.2 Billion In U.S. Market In 2017, According To Distilled Spirits Council

Supplier sales of distilled spirits in the U.S market rose by 4%, or $1 billion, last year, to hit $26.2 billion, according to the Distilled Spirits Council. Volumes rose by 2.6% to 226 million cases, a rise of 5.8 million cases from the prior year.

Spirits also continued to gain market share against beer, rising 0.7% to 36.6% of the total beverage alcohol market. The increase marks the eighth straight year of market share gains, where each point of market share is worth $720 million in supplier sales revenue.

On the international front, the trade association also projected a new export record of $1.63 billion of U.S. spirits sold around the globe in 2017, up 14.3% over 2016. Consumer tastes for premium American spirits and favorable exchange rates drove global sales, especially to markets where U.S. spirits enjoy duty-free access. Volumes were up 5%.

The top five growth markets by dollar value included the United Kingdom, up $55.7 million to $177.9 million (+45.6%); Germany, up $22.6 million to $123.5 million (+22.4%); Brazil, up $18.9 million to $29.1 million (+186.5%); France, up $15.7 million to $114.1 million (+16%); and Spain, up $14.5 million to $117.1 million (+14.1).

Napa wine industry fights to protect Napa Valley name on labels

The loophole, as opponents refer to it, allows wineries that hold a certificate exempting a wine of theirs from label approval (called a Certificate of Labeling Approval, or COLA, exemption) to buy out-of-state grapes, make the wine in their state and label it with the origin of the grapes, as long as the wine is then sold only in the state where it was made.

Memorial Day

Say Goodbye To Memorial!

In a last minute push to pass an economic development bill during the late hours of the last day of the session, the Legislature inserted an additional section that would allow liquor stores to open on Monday, Memorial Day, this year and in future years. Sales hours will be restricted to allow for stores to open at 12 noon. The latest allowable closing hour will be 11:00 PM, as it is for all other days of operation

So What Do You Think?

VERY INTERESTING READ ABOUT THE WINE INDUSTRY

Why We Believe In Wine Education!

Strong competition in wine sales will increase

According to Wine Business Monthly, roughly 90 percent of wine sold in the U.S. comes from the 30 top producers, and more than half of the wine sold domestically comes from E. & J. Gallo, The Wine Group and Constellation Brands. The fact that most of the domestic wine sold in this country is produced by a handful of companies is not shocking. What is shocking is that there are now more than 9,000 domestic wineries competing for the remaining 10 percent of sales.

Does size really matter?

The bigger the bottle, for instance, the longer the wine will age well. There’s less space (not oxygen, because that was removed and refilled with Nitrogen) at the top of the bottle. With less space at the top, it gives the wine a longer time to age.

Traditional Bordeaux Wine Labels Are Getting A Makeover

A 2007 study from the University of California, Berkeley, identified that the image on a wine label has a stronger impact on market success and brand personality than the color or layout of the label. Images of grape motifs or chateaux and vineyards scored well, while those of ‘unusual animals’ ranked lowest.

The 2016 Survey of American Wine Consumer Preferences showed similar results—with 64% of Americans favoring traditional labels over ‘modern’ or ‘fun/whimsical’ labels.

What is Malolactic Fermentation? The Buttery Taste in Wine

Ever wondered why some wines have a creamy or buttery taste? The process of Malolactic Fermentation is a winemaking process that gives both red and white wines a richer and creamier texture. Oddly enough, Malolactic Fermentation isn’t technically a fermentation at all.

How do you solve a problem like Prosecco?

America’s taste for Prosecco, while it has grown astronomically, has entered into a new phase. It has become a colossus, but it also has nowhere left to go. It’s kind of like King Kong on top of the Empire State Building.

France is becoming a leading source of innovation in the no-alcohol wine category.

Innovation in the vin sans alcohol category. Le Petit Béret, for example, has now released a range of beverages without a single trace of alcohol

The art of wine storytelling

Stories sell – which is why storytelling is marketing’s hottest new trend. Anyone who’s been to a wine conference lately will certainly have heard the cry go up for the wine trade to ‘tell its stories’. But what is ‘storytelling’, and how can the wine trade do it effectively? New research has uncovered some surprising answers.

Liquor Nutrition Site

Brown-Forman has unveiled a new website providing nutritional information for its portfolio of brands. While Brown-Forman has previously provided nutritional info to consumers on request, the new site will offer easier access to nutritional facts such as calories, fat, sodium and carbohydrates, as well as alcohol content per standard drink. The company’s consumer branded websites and social media pages will be adding a link to the nutrition website over the next several months. Early last year, Diageo also moved to increase consumer access to nutritional info on its brands, debuting a revamped DRINKIQ site devoted to the subject.

Exploring California Wineries Bell And Schug

image1

It will be a treat to feature wines from two legendary wine figures in Napa Valley history, Anthony Bell (Bell Wine Cellars) and Walter Schug (Schug Vineyard & Winery).  Walter Schug grew up in Germany and his experience was sought out by Joseph Phelps in 1973.  Walter made California’s first proprietary Bordeaux-Style blend, their well known Insignia label.  However, Walter’s passion was Pinot Noir and when Phelps cut their Pinot Noir program, Walter purchased land in Napa’s Carneros District and Schug Vineyard and Winery was born in 1980.

Anthony Bell, came to America by the way of South Africa.  He immediately made his mark on the California wine scene by taking over from legendary wine maker Andre Tchelistcheff.  Anthony would now be in charge of making the Beaulieu Vineyard (BV) “Georges de Latour” Private Reserve Wines.   Anthony would eventually grow his responsibilities to become BV’s General Manager.   However, as Napa became more corporate, Anthony wanted to return to his true passion, wine making.  In 1991 Bell Wine Cellars was founded and has produced Award Winning wines on his terms.

Proemio Wines Event

Tuesday September 20th 2016

Proemio – Prologue in old Medieval Spanish, stands for kick- start or first page. This is indeed the beginning of the winery’s story. In 2001, Marcelo Bocardo, third generation winemaker and the descendant of a traditional Italian immigrant family founded Proemio with the goal of producing high quality wines that truly represent his ancestors’ passion for viticulture and a legacy for the generations to come.

Proemio Wines are unique due to the personality imposed on them. They assure an important grape concentration with selective extraction of aromas, tannins and poly-phenols. All these processes aim at giving excellent volume, body and structure. Outstanding vineyards, passionate people, experience and friendship come together in the creation of their wines. Finally, aging is carried out in the finest French oak accompanied by a long bottling period.

Claudio Andreani (US Brand Ambassador) of Tenute Ambrogio e Giovanni Folonari of Tuscany, a great portfolio that includes Nozzole in Chianti Classico, La Fuga in Montalcino, TorCalvano in Montepulciano as well as Campo al Mare in Bolgheri.
“The Folonari family has been making wine since the late eighteenth century. In 1825 the family-owned business took the name “Fratelli Folonari” and adopted the mission of developing, producing and distributing the finest Italian wines throughout the world. In 1912, Italo Folonari – Ambrogio Folonari’s grandfather – and his brother Francesco purchased the Ruffino company in Tuscany that was famous for its Chianti wine in straw-covered flasks. After World War II, major changes in terms of economic development and improving standards of living began taking place in Italy. This also affected the wine industry where the Folonari family and Ambrogio in particular were among the first to promote this trend by producing new, high quality wines that contributed to creating the “new frontier” of the Italian wine. Ambrogio and his father Giovanni own some of the top Tuscan estates in Tuscany’s main appellations such as Nozzole in Chianti Classico, La Fuga in Montalcino, TorCalvano in Montepulciano, Cabreo in Panzano as well as Campo al Mare in Bolgheri.”
