DtC Shipments By Winery Size

DtC Sales by Small Wineries Reach $738 Million Annually

Small wineries, those producing 5,000-49,999 cases, are by far the biggest force in direct-to-consumer shipments, as this graph dramatically shows. Their sales reached $738 million in the 12 months ending in March 2013. The 49 large wineries producing 500,000 cases or more do less business via DtC shipments than the limited size wineries under 1,000 cases. Note that all winery-size tiers increased the value of their shipments in the past year.
