U.S. survey uncorks our buying habits, attitudes

The results of a new study about how much wine we’re drinking, who’s drinking it, what we’re drinking and how often might lift an eyebrow.
The Wine Market Council trade group surveyed 1,007 American adult wine drinkers in July. The findings, announced recently at, showed:
Baby boomers β€” not surprisingly β€” account for nearly one out of every four bottles of wine consumed in the United States.
The over-65 age group has the largest proportion of daily wine drinkers at 12 percent.
But it’s the Millennials (born in the mid-1970s to the early 2000s) and Gen-Xers (born from the 1960s to the early ’80s) that are driving growth. Daily wine drinking among Millennials is up 42 percent over five years ago, and 35 percent for Gen-Xers.
Screw caps? According to the findings, Millennials were significantly more apt than other generations to say they’d be “more likely” to buy their favorite wine if it was screw-capped, while baby boomers were more apt to be “less likely” to buy. Women are more open to screw caps than men.
Varietals? More respondents said they have been drinking Merlot, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir since 2006. Malbec has also grown in popularity. In the white category, Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Grigio gained more attention. In addition, the survey showed past-three-month purchases increased for Italian, Chilean and Argentine wines.
How do these findings stack up in real life? Melinda Chang, a sommelier for the Wine Market Council and wine director at the Modern, the restaurant and bar in the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, sees the survey reflected daily at her tables.
“I used to see Millennials ordering a cocktail first; now I see them reaching for the wine list. Boomers look for blue-chip wines, the classics, the Napa Cabernets, the Washington state Bordeaux-style blends,” Chang said this week.
“But Millennials and Gen-Xers want what’s the latest, hippest, coolest and most esoteric.” They’re open to Austrian GrΓΌner Veltliner, little known Spanish varietals, Argentine Malbecs and Chilean reds, she said. “They are the generations so flooded with information all the time that they are more comfortable asking for help at the table. Tableside wine dialogues are better than ever.”
Locally, Ericia Bartels, wine buyer at Angelina Italian Bistro in downtown Detroit, sees the same trends, especially because theater, sports and concerts drive so much of their business.
“On opera night, the boomers want their classic Napa Cabs, Merlots and Chardonnays, and always use the word ‘dry.’ Younger people come in for Detroit Derby Girls and are open to Malbecs and Chilean reds,” she said. “And before I get back to the table with the wine, they’ve used their iPhone app to pull up the wine’s profile and find out how much it costs at the grocery store.”
