Wines in a box have started blowing up and have seen the most substantial growth in the last year, in fact, 3.5 times the growth of traditionally bottled wine. Granted, there was nowhere but up for this genre of storage to go, but the growth is definitely more than I expected.
Oh, by the way, these aren't called box wines. They're "Cask Wines." Smart move.
The article also talks about how wine was the #2 growth drink behind bottled water. Not a bad year for the beverage.
Also, I stole that picture from sfgate.com. Thanks for that. Now I feel better.
