Wine consumption is growing in the United States.
Wine consumption trends have been on the rise for the past fifteen years in the United States, and continue to increase every year. In 2008, Wine Spectator magazine reported that the US became the second-largest wine market, beating Italy in terms of total wine consumed. Wikinvest states that American wine consumption grew thirty percent in the past decade, with new consumers not only being in their 40s and older, but in their 20s and 30s.
The clear past and continued growth of wine consumption in the United States means that Vintner's Circle is part of a vast and profitable market. Additionally, the concept of professionally guided, year-round, personalized wine making means Vintner's Circle fills a unique niche. Franchising with VCF means you have access to an increasing, dedicated demographic in a market that, despite a weakened economic climate, has continued to reflect growth.
