April 2013 Data Released on 05.15.2013
 
Wine Consumers Trade Up at Retail; Volume Is Nearly Flat
Retail sales of domestic table wine grew 6% in the 52 weeks ending in April, generating $287 million more than the same period a year earlier. The expansion reflects only a 1% increase in volume, meaning that consumers are not buying many more bottles, but are adding more expensive bottles to their shopping carts.
