Sales by Closure Type
Top of the Market - Largest 100 Premium Wine Brands
Cork Finished Wines Lead the Way in Expanding Premium Wine Sales
The Cork Quality Council has tracked wine sales by closure type for the Top 100 Premium Wine Brands since 2010. Nielsen Scanning Statistics are compiled every 4-weeks. The study is focused on premium domestic table wine, which for this purpose, is defined as wines packaged in 750ml bottles priced at $9 and up. Overall survey results indicate that the number of top brands using cork closures is growing, and that brands finished with cork have enjoyed more robust sales growth than brands finished with alternatives closures.
