Where We Buy Wine Is Changing. That's Good, I Think

Wine sales are surging in grocery stores, but winemakers have mixed feelings on the trend

Posted: March 12, 2015  By Mitch Frank

For winemakers, grocery stores are a blessing they're not sure they want.

Over dinner the other night, a California winemaker mentioned that he would be pouring his entry-level wine at one of the country's largest grocery chains in a few days. I assumed he'd be happy about this. His winery sells tens of thousands of cases of this wine at this chain each vintage. But he had mixed feelings.

Let's Not Write Off a Generation Just Yet

Craft beer's success has wineries worried about losing young customers; they're actually gaining potential customers with better palates

Posted: February 27, 2015  By Mitch Frank

Some wine-industry folks are worried that younger consumers are just as open-minded about what they drink. At a Feb. 6 presentation in Napa for the Wine Market Council, longtime analyst John Gillespie shared data illustrating that high-frequency wine drinkers—particularly younger drinkers—increasingly enjoy beer and spirits too.

The younger you are, the more likely you're enjoying beer as well as wine. The survey found that 95 percent of Millennials, 94 percent of Gen Xers and 78 percent of Baby Boomers drink beer at least once per week. The fear is that wine is losing a generation, particularly twenty-something men, to craft beer.

Are Small Wineries Doomed?

What the sale of Siduri says about the state of California wine

Posted: February 5, 2015  By Mitch Frank

Last week, Adam and Dianna Lee signed a deal selling Siduri, which produces 20,000 cases of California Pinot Noir a year, and Novy, a 5,000-case brand, to Jackson Family Wines—which owns more than two dozen wineries. Neither side will talk price, but based on other recent deals, we're talking tens of millions of dollars.

Some days, it feels like there are no small wineries left in California. Of course that's not true, but I'm often editing news of a larger wine company swallowing a smaller one.
