Blurred lines

WinePRO addresses this by seeking to understand more about the role of the wine and the drinking occasion and mapping those against the demographic profiles. People used to think very conventionally about wine, beer, cider and spirits as being very separate, whereas today’s consumer will choose different products due to their needs on any particular occasion. This is complicated further by the fusion of traditional drink categories in ready to drink formats.
