Value-Priced DtC Wines Not Growing
While value-priced wines have become more popular in flash sales, their performance is basically flat in direct-to-consumer shipments. They grew slightly in volume compared to a year earlier, and dropped slightly in value. These relatively inexpensive wines accounted for 11% of DtC value for the 12 months ending Oct 2012, shrinking from 12% in the previous 12-month period.Download the Wines & Vines/Ship Compliant 2016 Direct to Consumer shipping report
