Helping consumers become more wine wise & boosting wine sales pre-Christmas!

Wine is a dynamic market worth around £5.1 billion and growing at 2.7 YoY*, however the health lobby, tax hikes, changing consumer lifestyles & attitudes, especially amongst Millennials and of course the major social & economic effects of the Covid pandemic have all had an impact. Although still powering ahead with sparkling, fruit flavoured, lower ABV’s & canned, wine perceptions and consumption has undergone major change, which is why the market and the nation continues to need a National Wine Week to help educate and refocus!
