Direct-To-Consumer Wine Sales Tops $2 Billion in a Decade

Wines & Vines and ShipCompliant released the 2016 Direct-to-Consumer Wine Shipping Report, available on ShipCompliant's website and well-summarized here by Jim Gordon for Wines & Vines on January 25, 2016.  Notably, Direct to Consumer sales in the US reached $2 billion in just ten years after the Supreme Court paved the way for direct-to-consumer wine shipments -- that is 8% higher in value and volume (which exceeds the 2.2% growth in the wine retail marketplace) and the average price per bottle of wine shipped is $38.
