Global Wine Market Outlook, 2028
Wine is a favorite among consumers for several reasons, reflecting its enduring appeal and popularity. From light and crisp whites to full-bodied reds, sparkling wines, and sweet dessert wines, there is a wine for every occasion and palate. Wine's complexity, influenced by factors like grape varietals, terroir, and winemaking techniques, provides an intriguing sensory experience that wine enthusiasts enjoy exploring. It is often associated with celebrations, rituals, and special occasions. Wine regions like France, Italy, and Spain have long-standing winemaking traditions, adding to the allure and romance surrounding wine. Wine's ability to complement and enhance the flavors of food is highly valued by consumers. Moderate wine consumption has been linked to potential health benefits, such as improved cardiovascular health and antioxidants from the grapes. These perceived health benefits, along with the notion that wine is a sophisticated and elegant beverage, contribute to its positive image among consumers. The on-trade distribution channel segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 15.3% from 2021 to 2028. The growing party culture among the younger and working-class population across the globe is expected to boost the sales of the product through an on-trade sales channel.

According to the research report Global Wine Market Outlook, 2028, published by Bonafide Research, the market was valued at USD 396 billion in 2022, is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 6.11% to be worth USD 563 Billion by 2028. The global wine market has experienced steady growth over the years. The market is driven by increasing consumer demand, expanding wine production regions, and evolving drinking habits. The wine market offers a vast array of wine types and styles to cater to diverse consumer preferences. Red wine, white wine, and rosé wine are the most common categories. Within each category, there are numerous grape varietals and styles, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, and many more. Sparkling wines, such as Champagne and Prosecco, have gained popularity, along with fortified wines like Port and Sherry. Orange wine, also known as amber wine or skin-contact white wine, is a type of wine that is made from white grape varieties. Unlike traditional white wine production, where the grape skins are removed before fermentation, orange wine involves leaving the grape skins in contact with the juice for an extended period, often weeks or months. This extended skin contact gives the wine its characteristic orange or amber color. Carbernet Sauvignon & Merlot Red wines are the top selling while, Malbec & Bordeaux, Cabernet Franc, are the least ones. Among the white wine segment, Chardonnay & Sauvignon Blanc are top selling and Moscato & others are least ones. Rose d'Anjou, Malbec and Grenache are the popular rose wines being demanded by consumers.

Dessert wine or ice wine is yet another new wine type in the market that is made from grapes that have been naturally frozen on the vine. The ideal temperature for harvesting ice wine grapes is typically below -8°C (17.6°F). The most common grape varietals used for ice wine production include Riesling, Vidal Blanc, and Cabernet Franc, although other varietals such as Gewürztraminer and Chenin Blanc may also be used. Ice wine is typically served chilled and is often enjoyed on its own as a dessert wine or paired with desserts such as fruit-based pastries, crème brûlée, blue cheeses, or foie gras. Its sweetness and acidity make it a delightful companion to contrast rich and creamy flavors. Ice wine production is labor-intensive and requires specific climatic conditions, making it a relatively rare and expensive wine. The process of freezing the grapes concentrates the sugars and flavors, resulting in a unique and luxurious wine that is cherished by wine enthusiasts around the world. Fortified wines are wines that have been fortified with the addition of a distilled spirit, typically brandy. This process increases the alcohol content and often adds sweetness and complexity to the wine. Examples include Port, Sherry, Madeira, and Vermouth.

Red wine offers a wide range of flavors and aromas that appeal to a broad spectrum of wine consumers. The robust nature of red wine allows it to complement and enhance flavors in a range of dishes, including red meats, hearty pasta dishes, cheeses, and even dark chocolate. Red wine, particularly those rich in antioxidants like resveratrol, has been associated with potential health benefits when consumed in moderation. White wines are known for their refreshing and crisp flavor profiles, which include notes of citrus, green apple, tropical fruits, and floral aromas. It pairs well with a wide range of dishes, including seafood, poultry, salads, vegetarian fare, and lighter pasta dishes. This has led to increased demand for white wine and further projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.88%. New World wine-producing regions, such as the United States, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, have gained recognition for their high-quality white wines. Rosé wine has become particularly popular as a summer and outdoor drinking choice. It’s light, refreshing character and vibrant pink hues make it visually appealing and enjoyable in warm weather. Rosé wine is often associated with leisurely outdoor gatherings, picnics, and beachside sipping, contributing to its rising popularity.

The trend of premiumization has been prominent in the wine market, with consumers increasingly willing to invest in higher-quality and premium wines. Craft wines, produced by smaller wineries with a focus on artisanal winemaking and unique expressions, have also gained traction. These wines often showcase distinctive terroir characteristics, innovative techniques, and limited production runs, appealing to wine enthusiasts seeking a more exclusive and differentiated experience. Experimenting with new grape varieties, developing sustainable and organic practices, exploring alternative winemaking techniques, and introducing new wine styles or packaging formats have boosted demand for premium wines. By staying relevant and responsive to changing consumer preferences, wine players have remained competitive and gained traction in the global market.
Semi-dry wines typically have a residual sugar level that is higher than dry wines but lower than fully sweet wines. This subtle sweetness can enhance the fruit flavors and provide a softer mouthfeel making it the most selling type of wine with over 40% share. While, there is a rising trend towards sweet wine that provide a pleasant contrast to the dry and tannic qualities found in many other wine styles, appealing to those who prefer a softer and fruit-forward taste.

Wine tourism has become a significant aspect of the wine industry, as consumers increasingly seek immersive experiences at vineyards and wineries. Wine-producing regions worldwide have developed wine routes, wine trails, and cellar door experiences, attracting tourists and wine lovers to explore vineyards, participate in tastings, and learn about the winemaking process. Wineries are adopting eco-friendly practices, such as organic and biodynamic viticulture, water conservation, and renewable energy usage. Consumers are increasingly interested in wines produced with sustainable practices and are actively seeking organic, biodynamic, and environmentally conscious wine options. This in turn is propelling more and more drinkers to taste & develop a wine drinking habit.

Retail stores often provide helpful staff and signage to assist customers in selecting wines based on their preferences.

Precision viticulture involves the use of various technologies such as remote sensing, geographic information systems (GIS), and drones to monitor and manage vineyards more efficiently. IoT devices and sensor technology are being integrated into vineyards and wineries to monitor and control various parameters. These devices can measure environmental conditions, such as temperature, humidity, and light intensity, in vineyards and cellars. AI algorithms can analyze historical data on weather patterns, vineyard management practices, and wine quality to make predictions and recommendations for improving vineyard management, grape selection, and winemaking techniques. Optical sorting machines equipped with cameras and sensors can quickly and accurately sort grapes based on their size, ripeness, and quality. Automated harvesting machines can efficiently harvest grapes, reducing labor costs and optimizing harvest timing.
