Off Premise Sales

 

Red blends/Meritage wines grew the fastest of any major varietal or type during the 12 months ending in February. Fume/Sauvignon Blanc was No. 2 in growth rate and Pinot Noir was No. 3. Cabernet Sauvignon also grew well considering its much larger base. Syrah is not shown because its total sales were smaller than these eight types. Its sales dropped by 12%.

Sales of red blends and Meritage wines priced from $8 to $10.99 including such domestic brands as Apothic and Menage a Trois far outstripped sales at other price points during the 12 months ending in February, according to IRI.
