October Sees Stronger Growth Patterns in Sales, Hiring
U.S. wine sales rose 5% to $4.3 billion in October versus a year ago, pointing to stronger growth patterns. Off-premise sales at multiple-outlet and convenience stores IRI tracks totaled $650 million in the four weeks ended Oct. 7, up 1%. Direct-to-consumer (DtC) shipments rose 22% to $481 million, reflecting five Mondays in the month and the absence of wildfires that disrupted shipments a year ago. Strong demand for DtC and winemaking positions lifted Winejobs.com's Winery Job Index 14% to 196.
