Offers Spike in December
Flash offers continued to climb as 2013 came to an end. In December, flash websites made 722 offers for domestic wines. That total was 26% higher than in December of 2012 and brought the 12-month total to virtually the same level as 2012 as well. The monthly average of unique U.S. wineries offering wines through flash sites has increased each year since Wines Vines Analytics first started tracking offers. In 2011 the average was 244 per month, which grew to 296 in 2012 and 315 per month during the past year. The total number of wineries with offers through flash sites in 2013 was 1,062.
