Rise of rosé

Hong Kong Tatler - - Life | Wine -

In the US, sales of rosé priced at more than US$11 per bot­tle jumped 60 per cent last year, mak­ing it one of the fastest-sell­ing wine cat­e­gories in the coun­try, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by Nielsen. This echoed find­ings from the Wine Mar­ket Coun­cil’s an­nual Sonoma County pre­sen­ta­tion. On av­er­age, Amer­i­cans spend US$9.06 for a bot­tle of sauvi­gnon blanc. De­spite warn­ings of slower wine con­sump­tion, wine sales in the US in­creased 2.5 per cent over­all in 2015—the fastest growth rate since 2012.
