August Was a Hot Month for the Wine Economy

October 2011

wine industry data center dtc shipments destinations
 
Our data show that Californians ordered an even greater percentage of the DtC shipments of U.S. wine in the past 12 months than they did in the same period through August 2010. Second-ranked Texas saw a slight decrease in their share of DtC shipments. New York, Florida and Illinois kept their Nos. 3, 4 and 5 positions, while Virginia and Colorado swapped spots Nos. 6 and 7.

August may be the hottest month in terms of temperature, but in the wine economy it’s usually one of the coolest. Still, Wines & Vines' metrics of sales and winery-hiring activity showed very positive August numbers. Direct-to-consumer shipment in particular showed a big increase over 2010 in dollars during a month when many shipments are delayed until cooler weather returns to prevent damage to wine enroute.
