What you need to know
Most of recent value growth in the UK wine market, worth an
estimated £13.26 billion in 2018, has come from prices increasing
and trading up, with more modest volume performance.
At the same time though, wine buyers remain focused on buying
wine on special offer/promotion, indicating that while the majority
are switched on to better quality they are still looking for savings.
A similar dichotomy is apparent in that most wine buyers stick to
buying one or a small number of wine types, although the majority
are interested in sampling new types of wine or suggestions on
different wines to buy. For new wine types to break through they
therefore need to disrupt shoppers.
On balance, slightly more people are cutting back on wine rather
than drinking more, so new products that tap into interest in
alcohol moderation are well placed to appeal. This includes both
lower alcohol wines or wine-based drinks, as well as formats
other than the standard 75cl bottle, such as half or 50cl bottles,
pouches and single-serve cans.
Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Richard Caines, a leading analyst in the Food & Drink sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
In a market where many shoppers are focused on buying what is on special offer and consumers typically drink from a narrow repertoire of wine types, wine festivals can help to prompt people to buy more wine and encourage greater experimentation. These should include samplings and suggestions on wines people might like, as well as highlighting new lower alcohol wines or wine-based drinks to appeal to those looking to cut their intake of alcohol.Richard Caines
