Wine and Champagne to emerge in UK on-trade

Published:  23 July, 2008

Opportunity knocks for Champagne and sparkling wine categories in the UK's pubs, bars and restaurants.

Consumers prefer New World wines to Old World, with Australia topping the league with 24% market share.

"Many French wines still can't use varietal labelling, and this is seen as a barrier to some consumers who lack the knowledge or understanding to make an educated choice," the report explained.

WSTA chief executive Jeremy Beadles said: "This research shows that changes in the market place are creating opportunities for wine producers, and there is clearly the

scope to offer new and different wines to consumers - in particular, a wider range of sparkling wine."
