Sparkling Summer Sales

9th September 2016


The summer heatwave and Rio Olympics fuelled an increase in sales of sparkling wines in the UK, according to Nielsen.

The consumer insights company reported that over the four weeks ending in August 13th, Champagne sales rose by around five percent in value – faster than the 52-week average pace of growth.  They also found that sparkling wine sales were up nearly 14 percent in value compared to the same period in 2015.

They expect to see a further increase in bubbly sales in the data for the August Bank Holiday weekend when it becomes available.
