Washington wine shipments expanded by 13% in the second quarter compared to the same period a year earlier. This is the second consecutive quarter of strong year-over-year gains, but both come against depressed year-ago comparisons. The strong volume gains were driven primarily by a rebound in out-of-state shipments. DTC shipments were also up sharply.
