Off-premise sales, direct-to-consumer shipments and the Winery Job Index all grew in 2012, as confirmed by the December data for each of these metrics. Domestic wine sales in major retail stores reached $5 billion for the year; DtC sales neared $1.5 billion, and winery job activity hit an all-time high. The December Winery Job Index surpassed all other Decembers since 2007. The 2012 index average hit an all-time high, too. More information is available on these metrics and others at winesandvines.com/metrics.
