19th June, 2013 by Gabriel Stone

1. Gallo

GalloVolume 2011: 15,070,000 9l cases
Volume 2012: 16,000,000 9l cases
Change 11-12: +6.2%
2011 ranking: 1

With sales split fairly evenly between its domestic and export markets, Gallo continues to invest heavily not just in following trends, but in creating them. 2012 saw the brand claim a 42% share of a US Moscato market that had leapt by 73% in the previous year. On the back of this success, Gallo launched its 8.5% abv Gallo Moscato in the UK as part of a plan “to invest more money in Moscato than we have ever invested in any single product launch in the UK.”

Building on this momentum, the company has used 2013 to launch its 5.5% abv Gallo Summer White, a partner for the Summer Red introduced in 2011. In other parts of its extensive portfolio, whose annual sales are estimated to top 70m cases, the company has added a 9% abv Barefoot Pink Moscato and extended Californian red blend Apothic beyond the US and Canada by launching in the UK.

  1. The largest wine list, lacks the brand Rotkaeppchen, which is a brand sold in Canada, Europe, Russia and China.

    The company sells 145 million 0,75 L bottles per year with 1 brand Rotkaeppchen besides Mumm sekt (Rotkaeppchen is 1 core brand for sparkling, and still wines)
    This amount sold per year is more than most brand listed in this article http://www.rotkaeppchen-mumm.de

    12,083,333 million casses of 9 Liter per year sold world wide in 4 continents

    As we see the brand list per volume sold per year, it is missing in your list…
