PALM BEACH, Fla., Oct. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- FinancialNewsMedia.com News Commentary - Wine has gained wide-scale penetration across the globe. Its popularity is attributed to its affordable pricing along with fine taste. Online sales of wine have made it exceptionally affordable and accessible to consumers, regardless of their location. Along with that, digital communication technologies have improved the experience of shopping for different types of wine. The off-trade distribution channel enjoys maximum penetration across the globe. The regular consumption of table and dessert wines is likely to be the major factor driving the sales of different types of wines through off-trade distribution channels. In addition, the low prices of wine being sold through these distribution channels are likely to encourage more consumers to opt for these, resulting in a positive impact on the market growth over the forecast years. According to a report from Grand View said that: "The rising adoption of wine among all age groups from the young generation to the old age population across the globe is the key factor for market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the global wine distribution channel due to the extensive closure of and restrictions on hotels and restaurants across the world." Active Companies in the markets today include Gaucho Group Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: VINO), Vintage Wine Estates, Inc. (NASDAQ: VWE), Brown–Forman Corporation (NYSE: BF-A), Willamette Valley Vineyards, Inc. (NASDAQ: WVVI), Constellation Brands, Inc. (NYSE: STZ).
Grand View continued: "Meanwhile, there has been a sudden change in the purchasing behavior of consumers. With restaurants, hotels, and bars shut or running on limited capacity, consumers have turned to food retailers as well as online portals to shop for the product. Direct-to-consumer sales have also benefited from this shift in consumer behavior, with specialist wine trade also reporting some increase in sales. The global wine market size is expected to reach USD 685.99 billion by 2028, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. It is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.4% from 2021 to 2028. The growing preference for wines among all age groups instead of hard spirits across the world is expected to be a major factor contributing to the growth of the market. In addition to this, growing party culture with higher demand for low alcoholic beverages is anticipated to fuel the market growth over the forecast period."

"We expect this wine to be a real hit with Pinot Noir lovers. And due to its limited production, we are excited to be able to present a private en premier offer to all stakeholders who would like to lock in their order early."
"This Pinot Noir was planted in 2000 with plants specifically selected for the Cuadro Benegas region, which has warm days and cool nights. Clones 777-778 were chosen, which give a measured production of very small clusters and grains with rigid skin and little foliage, important for insolation in the ripening of the fruits" said Algodon Wine Estates Senior Winemaker, Mauro Nosenzo. "The resulting wine is of a medium intensity red cherry color, with fruity aromas. Notes of red fruits such as raspberries and currants can be detected, as well as tobacco and chocolate derived from the passage through the wooden cask. On the palate it is delicate with soft and balanced tannins, with mineral, earthy and some mushroom touches that are striking, and balanced acidity with a persistent finish. You'll be thrilled to sip this from your glass. Cheers!" CONTINUED… Read this full release for Gaucho Group Holdings at: https://www.gauchoholdings.com/news/press
