January 2013 Data  -  Released on February 14, 2013
 
Slow Month of January Still Sees 4% Growth for DtC Shipments
DtC shipments made a modest gain in January, increasing 4% in value compared to January 2012. This is much slower growth than in December but good enough to keep the 12-month trend at 10%. January has been the third-slowest month for DtC shipments for several years, next to July and August when the weather is too hot for safely shipping wine club purchases and others.

DtC Shipments By Bottle Price

The share of market that different bottle price segments hold in dollars versus volume of DtC shipments shows a dramatic inverse relationship. The most expensive wines -- $100-plus -- account for the largest share of dollars and the smallest share of bottles shipped. The least expensive wines -- less than $20 per bottle -- held the largest share of volume and the second to lowest share of dollars.
