DtC Market Share By Price Segment

Half the money spent on direct-to-consumer shipments in the past 12 months went toward the highest priced wines at $50-plus and only 11% on the least expensive, priced under $20 per bottle, according to the Wines & Vines/ShipCompliant model. The results tend to underline the value of an active wine club and other direct shipments for domestic wineries. The dollar share numbers contrast sharply with sales by flash sites. Of those, 51% of sales involved wines at less than $20.
