Many Americans celebrate the holidays and New Year with a glass of wine, with particularly strong offline retail sales in November and December. Online, however, that is not the case, so to speak. While online sales are up about five percent this holiday season, most online wine orders are made in October, before the cold weather puts the freeze on wine shipments across the Midwest and Northeast.
The holiday wine report
This Yuletide season, shoppers spent an average of $53.29 on each wine order, and buy two bottles per order. Chardonnay is the most popular wine being ordered online this holiday season. While the selections are quite close, the most popular wine from our select merchants is J Lohr Riverstone Chardonnay.
