Caymus Leads Off-Premise Brands at $40-plus
Last month we ranked the top-selling wine brands at $20 or more per bottle. That ranking was very popular, and some readers asked if we could also rank brands in a higher price range. So this month we focused on domestic wine brands at $40 and higher. The table shown here, based on IRI off-premise data, ranks the top 20 brands in this price range using 12-month sales ending June 1. Seventeen of the brands are Napa Valley-based, including the No. 1 brand in this price range: Caymus Vineyards. Caymus sold $6 million worth of mostly Cabernet Sauvignon in the hundreds of U.S. food, drug, liquor, club and convenience stores monitored by IRI. In second place and $2 million behind was Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars of Napa Valley. In third place was Jordan Vineyard & Winery from Sonoma County with $3.8 million in sales and the largest case volume among the 20 brands: 7,382.
