Question: Thanks Sid for your Wednesday “Quora” on wine. Realize wine sales are down but is there a specific wine that is bucking that trend on an upwards curve?
Answer: Not sure we qualify as a “Quora” but we have fun trying to help out on your wine questions. Yes, lighter wines and those with less alcohol are on the rise. Sparkling wines are doing OK and of course always Champagne. My nomination for upward movement is Albarino from Rias Baixas in Spain. Perhaps not that surprising as Albarino provides a lovely crisp, fresh lighter style at good value compared to Chablis and other more expensive similar types.
