    Offsale wines are always going to be in top 10 because they are cheap.. Where’s the top 10 on trade wines??

    Thanks for sharing. Great inspiration to the wine business. It is tough even to grow a brand to a million case level. Australia and US brands have really made it happen on the Global state. I wont be surprised to see a brand from Argentina in the list in few years. What you can take from here is ‘price, product, package and promotion’ makes it happen if you want to build the brand. We also want to add penetration separately here as lot of credit goes to their importers and distributors.

    they are the top 10 BRANDS?? it is keating! Brands may include several different wines under it, if top Brand, which means all wines under that brand are top? if you say 10 top RED WINES, or 10 top WHITE WINES, or even 10 top Moscato/Shiraz (any particular taste), I would think it is more relavent and believeable.

    @ricky johnston I think Ricky has a good point! I understand this includes both on-trade and off-trade! I think a ranking like this, but done according to value instead of volume could be very interesting, and im sure a french wine would pop into the ranking!
