November 2018 Data  -  Released on December 15, 2018
 
Selective Spending Buoys November Sales
U.S. wine sales rose 6% in November versus a year ago to $4.3 billion, bw166 reported, but the growth masked slack gains in case volumes. Off-premise sales at multiple-outlet and convenience stores IRI tracks totaled $808 million in the four weeks ended Dec. 2, up 1% from a year ago. Direct-to-consumer (DtC) shipments were flat at $416 million, after a strong showing last year. Demand for winemaking and DtC positions was steady even as Winejobs.com's Winery Job Index fell 4% to 183.
