Domestic wine sales for May in the off-premise channel rose 5% higher than last May, according to market research firm IRI, and the 52-week growth rate was 6%.

Sparkling wine grew 10% in May and 9% during the past 52 weeks, while table wine grew at the same rates as the averages since it dominates wine sales.

The volume of domestic wine sold in IRI-tracked stores reached 8.4 million cases in May.

Sauvignon Blanc as a category from all countries grew by 14% in value in U.S. retail stores since May 2015. It’s clear on the graph that bottled wines from $20 to $24.99 and premium box wines at $4.50 and higher per 750ml were the hottest categories.

 


Three price segments accounted for 86% of Sauvignon/Fume Blanc sales. The four thinnest slices represent the very highest and very lowest price segments.
