Majestic: Top wine and spirits trends for 2018

Prosecco isn’t going anywhere… yet

“Write off Prosecco at your peril! Sales of this light sparkling style is still booming despite warnings from dentists that the bubbles and sweetness can be a challenge for your gnashers. However, with another difficult harvest in Northern Italy (where some yields are down as much as 30%), sparkling wines from Sicily or Central Italy will be good value alternatives to stave off price increase pains and bring some sparkle back to your wine bill.”

It’s the juggernaut that keeps on rolling. As Majestic points out, while a lower harvest in the Veneto might present producers with a bit of a challenge to Prosecco’s volume growth, which could serve to drive up its price, its biggest problem will be keeping up with demand, not drumming it up.
