Off-Premise Sales Flat as Red Blends Gain Market Share
Off-premise sales in IRI's multiple-outlet and convenience store channel in the four weeks ended Oct. 8, 2017 were even with last year. Sales of $637 million rose $2 million from a year ago. Scant growth of both domestic table and sparkling wines didn't hurt 52-week sales, which gained 3% to $8.8 billion. Cabernet Sauvignon claimed 25% of table wine sales in the period but red blends led growth, rising 6% to claim 11% of table wine sales in the latest 52 weeks.
