Change in Bottle Price of $20-Plus Wines

Though their growth rate dipped in November, sales of wines at $20-plus per bottle continued their years-long climb. Since January 2010 the category has roughly doubled in value.

High-quality Merlot producers have some good news in terms of bottle price, as the varietal rose faster over that past year than any other major varietal in the $20-plus range. This runs counter to Merlot’s price performance in DtC shipments. Red blends also grew significantly in price, paralleling their performance in DtC.
