Demographics are crucially important to wineries and the wine trade. But relevant data are hard to find and often incomplete and conflicting. Demographics and Wine provides the most comprehensive and nuanced information and analysis on U.S. wine consumer demographics available. 

Demographics play a vital role in shaping the propensity to buy wine – and some groups are far more impactful than others– particularly in the upper tiers of the market. Demographics and Wine clarifies the audience for wine and provides insights into consumer behavior to inform segmentation, customer targeting, and marketing strategy. 

The U.S. is also undergoing a profound demographic transition that is altering the complexion of the wine consumer base and creating potential headwinds for wine demand. The report highlights the opportunities and threats associated with demographic change and their implications for strategic planning and marketing. 

The report is based on analysis of public use microdata from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Consumer Expenditures Survey, which collects two-week spending diaries from approximately 6,000 households per year. Households are segmented by age, income, education,race/ethnicity, sex, and generation. The new edition includes data through 2020. 

Price: $595. Small businesses and nonprofits are eligible for a discounted price of $395.
