Here are the 10 consumer drinks trends to watch out for in 2018

6. Sicilian Wines

Sales of Sicilian wines are on the rise in Waitrose, which said that “a landscape of both volcanic and coastal areas creates wines combining New World ripeness with crisp Italian flavours.”

Sicilian wine has also been showing up more and more in supermarkets and specialist retailers, including Majestic, which this year added a sparkling wine from the region to its own-label range.

Sicily has also seen a comparatively better harvest than the rest of Italy this year, after “bizarre weather” led to many regions seeing a 30% drop in yield.
