April 2012 Data Released on 05.15.2012
 
52-week Growth Rate for Domestic Table Wine Rises to 8%
Off-premise sales of domestic table wine shot up 11% in the four weeks ending April 15, which was enough to boost the more inertia-laden 52-week growth to 8%. A very positive Easter holiday appeared to be the main driver, and helped domestic sparkling wines to increase 27% in dollar sales over a year ago.
