Northwest Growth Strong as March Wine Sales Spring Forward
U.S. wine sales rose 5% to $3.7 billion in March, bw166 reported, with steady growth of 3% in off-premise sales and 10% growth in direct-to-consumer (DtC) reflecting a firm market. Northwest wineries showed strength in both multiple-outlet and convenience stores IRI tracked as well as DtC. Winery hiring rose 4% for the second straight month, with greater demand for finance positions trumping ongoing demand for winemaking staff.
