• Insider Secrets 2021: Not the Same 7 Wine Trends to Watch

    Every year, you can read gads of wine trends lists that mostly share the same predictions. At Case-by-Case Wines, we have our own take on what the trends will be this year.

    wine trend celebration fun

    Celebration/Fun

    Everyone’s ready to break out of isolation and celebrate a return to public spaces with actual human beings. So many of us have postponed important events or had low-key gatherings. Once we reach the point where we can go out into the world, we’re going to celebrate! We’ll get together with our friends to drink the special bottles we’ve been saving. We’ll toast to fresh air and human contact with bottles of sparkling Rose, Piquette, and Pet-Nat. We’ll plan weddings, birthday parties, and more. Put the light reds on ice, chill down the wine seltzers, and let the parties begin!

    wine trend travel

    Travel

    Our desire to travel remains behind bars. But 2021 will bring some steps towards travel freedom as the vaccine spreads more widely. We’ll start by driving to local tasting rooms or to a favorite local wine bar to enjoy in-person outdoor wine tastings. Later in the year, we may drive to a neighboring state to sample what they’re pouring. Or take a short flight to Texas, Missouri, Arizona, or New York State to learn what the buzz is about. If travel doesn’t materialize as we hope, we’ll see virtual wine tours (see below.) Cheers!

    wine trend digital wine events

    Digital Wine Events

    During 2020, the wine world went digital in a big way by necessity. Everyone knows Zoom now. Online wine events will continue in 2021, especially if travel doesn’t materialize. In that case, online events will get more creative and engaging. We don’t want the same events we had last year. Look for virtual wine tours and tastings, personalized private tastings for wine club members, or interactive tasting events that add in games, music, or art. Vino-tainment will take-off this year!

    wine trend diversity

    Diversity

    2021 will be the year we put our dollars where our voices are. We’re going to support Women-, African-American-, Asian-, and Latin-owned wine companies. From wineries to small retail shops, we’ll seek out minority-owned businesses. Search out a local tasting room or an online sommelier who lost their job in 2020. Ask for minority-owned wines at your local restaurants. Donate money to minority-owned distributors or importers. Don’t just talk about it. Take action!

    wine trend online shopping

    Online Wine Shopping

    Our online wine shopping habits created in 2020 will continue and even grow, no matter what happens this year. Instead of buying mediocre wine at the grocery store, we learned we could buy much better wine online for a bit more money. Shopping online allowed us to find wines we couldn’t find locally. We could compare prices. We saved money buying by the case. And we didn’t have to lug heavy bottles home from the store. Keep on clicking!

    wine trend food

    Food

    While 2020 destroyed our ability to eat out at our favorite restaurants, it did force us to improve our cooking at home. When we realized we could order fabulous wine delivered to our door, we started recreating restaurant experiences at home. We expect this trend to continue. But, some days, we want to take a break from cooking, so we’ll still order out for delivery and pickup. We should see more restaurants adding canned wine, half-bottles, and low- or no-alcohol options.

    wine trend specific wines

    Specific Wines

    Portugal and Rose Prosecco seem to be on most 2021 wine trends lists. But, we see more interesting options, such as Jura and South West France, plus Austria. These wines offer surprising quality and value. Vermouth’s versatility will make it the ideal wine in 2021. Given the difficult conditions the Australian wine industry faces, expansion in the U.S. will be a priority. We should see more of these incredible wines at more affordable prices. Ditto South Africa if the government sets them free.

  • Insider Secrets: Fun Fall Facts About Wine – 10 Facts About Wine Grape Harvest

    Now’s the time to get ready for Fall and the upcoming Halloween celebrations. Below, find 10 fun Fall facts about wine, some spooky, some not!

    10 Facts About Wine Grape Harvest

    1. The Greek goddess of the harvest, Demeter, killed the Earth’s crops when Hades crowned her daughter, Persephone, his Queen. Once Persephone was freed in the Spring, Demeter returned growth to the Earth.
    2. Harvest is when workers gather wine grapes, and winemaking begins. Some people call this period “crush” because it’s when winemakers begin to process the grapes. 
    3. Many crops are harvested in the Fall from apples to turnips, making it a great time to experiment with wine and food.
    4. Fall’s Equinox (September 22 or 23) marks the beginning of the season, while the Winter Solstice (December 21 or 22) marks its end. 
    5. Wine grape harvests typically run from August to October in the northern hemisphere and from February to April in the southern hemisphere. Harvest is coming earlier due to climate change.
    6. Wine Grape Harvest Order
      • Sparkling wine grapes like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are harvested first to keep sugars low and acids high.
      • White wine grapes come next with Viognier and Chenin Blanc on the later side.
      • Red wine grapes follow with Merlot and Syrah on the earlier end.
      • Ice wine grapes are harvested much later to accumulate more sugars.

    Exceptions exist, but you get the idea.

    1. In the vineyard, photosynthesis ends, and leaves turn red and gold, falling after harvest as the vines prepare for winter dormancy.
    2. The “Harvest” moon appears during the Fall, lighting the way for grape growers to bring in their crops. 
    3. Harvest conjures images of birth and of voluptuous women surrounded by the fruits of the vine.
    4. Wine is associated with love and sex, especially during Valentine’s Day. But Valentine’s Day should occur in the Fall because:
      • More relationships start in the Fall. Who wants to spend the long winter alone? 
      • Sex hormones increase going into the Fall and Winter, declining in the Spring and Summer.
      • The highest birth rates occur during the Fall (September.)

    Wine enhances romantic relationships, so add more wine to your life in the Fall and enjoy!

  • Insider Secrets: Fun Fall Facts About Wine – 10 Facts About Grape Harvest Festivals

    Now’s the time to get ready for Fall and the upcoming Halloween celebrations. Below, find 10 fun Fall facts about wine, some spooky, some not!

    10 Facts About Grape Harvest Festivals

    Wine grape harvest festivals have been around as long as humans have made wine. A good harvest festival allows everyone to relax after the hard work is done. 

    1. The historical Dionysia Festival was dedicated to Dionysis/Bacchus: the god of everything wine, harvest, festivals (Bacchanalia), and insanity (bonus!). The goal of his harvest parties was releasing fear, suffering, and worry, while promoting moderation and joy.
    2. Halloween originates from Celtic festivals celebrating the end of harvest. What a great time to make a delicious, warm spiced wine to pair with your candy or a savory meal.
    3. The famous German beer festival, Oktoberfest, serves wine, particularly the German sparkling wine, sekt.
    4. Niagara Grape & Wine Festival in St. Catharines, Ontario, is Canada’s largest Fall wine festival.
    5. Festival of Grapes takes place in the Village of Silver Creek, New York, and has been running since the 1960s.
    6. Carlton Crush Harvest Festival, Carlton, Oregon, features a Team Grape Stomp competition.
    7. At the Olympic Peninsula Harvest Wine and Cider Tour, Olympic Peninsula, Washington, guests partake of local wine and cider while communing with nature.
    8. The Fredericksburg Food and Wine Fest, Fredericksburg, Texas, features the Great Gargantuan Grape Toss and Texas wine, beer, food, and music.
    9. Harvest parties, some with grape stomping events, appear anywhere wine grapes are harvested.

    While having nothing to do with wine, we must include Día de los Muertos, Mexico’s famous Day of the Dead celebration. Start a new tradition by toasting the dead with a delicious Mexican wine.

  • Insider Secrets: How To Save Money on Wine

    Do you pay too much for wine? Are you buying the highest-quality wine you can for the price you want to pay? Do you know how to find great wine at reasonable prices? Do you actually want to save money on wine?

    Well, if you are wondering any of these things, Case by Case Wine clues you into the secrets.

    Wine Pricing Unmasked

    At Case by Case Wine, we’re concerned about the ever-increasing prices of wine. We believe in transparency about wine pricing, but the industry as a whole does not.

    We’ve heard the long-standing joke about making a small fortune in the wine business. Start with a large fortune. But while some wineries do make a small fortune, others file for bankruptcy.

    The business of wine is tricky, and many get caught up in its romance, but the reality can be harsh.

    With high capital and labor needs, many factors complicate wine pricing:

    • Geography/geology/history
    • Land, AVA designation, land preparation
    • Planting costs/agricultural practices/certification costs
    • Climate/weather management/mitigation
    • Pest/disease control
    • Manufacturing costs
    • Marketing, sales, and distribution expenses
    • Consumption patterns/culture
    • Competition at every level/wholesale wine trade
    • Supply/demand
    • Reputation/brand/scores/premiumization
    • Taxes/duties/tariffs

    In general, lower-tier producers drive cost containment to manage price, while boutique and ultra-premium wineries pour money into increasing quality and brand and image building.

    Larger producers enjoy economies of scale, often manipulating the market by undercutting smaller wineries.
    Though these many factors and more influence wine pricing in the U.S., the regulatory system for beverage alcohol has an extraordinary impact on the price at the retail level.

    Let’s look at some numbers.

    Basic Wine Pricing Model for Imported Wine

    Basic Wine Pricing Model for Imported Wine

    Let’s start at the cellar door with a $10 bottle of imported wine.

    Traditional Imported Wine Pricing Model

    This simple illustration shows the three-tier regulatory system’s impact on price.

    Ex-cellar/Ex-chateau/FOB price of wine in country of origin $10.00
    Landed Cost in the U.S. (includes federal tax) $12.00
    Tier 1: Importer Margin (Profit) 35-50% $18.46
    Tier 2: Distributor Margin (Profit) 35-50% plus state tax & freight) $27.69
    Tier 3: Retail Margin (Profit) 35-50% (plus sales tax) $41.54
    Excluding Additional Sales & Marketing Costs or brand-name markup 246% total Markup

    The total markup of $29.54 represents 71% of the total price.

    Case by Case Wine Pricing Model

    Here’s how our pricing model works, using the same $10.00 bottle of imported wine.

    Ex-cellar/Ex-chateau/FOB price of wine $10.00
    Landed Cost (includes federal tax) $12.00
    Importer/Retailer Margin $19.99
    Includes Free Shipping on 6 bottles 67% total Markup

    The markup of only $7.99 makes up 40% of the total price.  We remove $21.55 of expenses that typically goes to middlemen and overhead at each level.

    Consumers save more than 50%, a HUGE win!

    Let’s Talk About Value

    The following illustration shows the composition of the components of a bottle of wine.

     

    Inexpensive Wine Expensive Wine
    Packaging $1.08 14.2% $5.25 15.7%
    Wine* $2.58 34.0% $10.71 32.0%
    Margin $3.94 51.8% $17.54 52.3%
    Total Price $7.60 100% $33.50 100%

    * ‘wine’ includes raw materials + production costs

    On a percentage basis, the inexpensive bottle contains more wine but doesn’t necessarily correlate to the quality.

    Knowing how any specific wine is priced is almost impossible. With no industry standards, pricing varies with every wine. Without transparency, you can’t know if you are paying a fair price.

    Comparing wines from different regions, states, or countries raises more complications. Local labor, exchange rates, land values, grape prices, and other costs vary tremendously.

    The cost of oak barrels, time and space for aging, and high land costs push the prices up for more expensive wine.

    And the unacknowledged truth makes things worse: “margin is THE major component of a bottle of wine, especially a premium wine.”

    At the end of the day, wine producers, distributors, and retailers will charge what the market will bear. They hate to reduce prices but are happy to keep increasing them.

    Evaluating and buying wine based only on price doesn’t get the best result, because price does not guarantee quality.

    Bringing Transparency to Wine Pricing

    Bringing Transparency to Wine Pricing

    At Case by Case Wine, we are dedicated to exploding the myths surrounding wine, including price. By disrupting the distribution system, we reduce costs and pass savings to consumers.

    As passionate wine professionals, we want to bring high-quality wines at fair prices to wine drinkers everywhere.

    Unlike many in the industry, we value transparency for consumers about ingredients labeling, price, and production methods.

    We encourage consumers to stop buying wine at the local grocery store because groceries only sell what the large distributors bring them. With ongoing consolidation, more distributors get gobbled up, which reduces choice and raises prices.
    By the time a wine gets to the grocery store, consumers pay much more than they should!

    With our deep expertise in importing, evaluating, trading, producing, and selling wine, we know all the secrets.

    How do we do it?

    • Buy directly from producers around the world
    • No salespeople
    • Lower overhead costs
    • Quantity discounts
    • Shipping efficiencies
    • Online only

    Our business model allows us to offer premium wine at near wholesale pricing. We offer a broader portfolio of quality wines at unbeatable prices than our competitors.

    Our selection is unmatched because we only work with producers whose wines meet our demanding standards.

    In this vast wine world, you need a guide to help you find wine that delivers on both price and value.

  • Insider Secrets: Tips and Tricks for How to Buy Wine

    How do you choose the wine you buy? Case by Case Wine looks at some of the factors people use when buying wine. We offer a few tips and tricks to make your wine experience better, less expensive, and less stressful.

    how most people buy wine

    How Most People Buy Wine

    It’s Friday afternoon, and you start thinking about the weekend. Then you realize you don’t have any wine at home, so you stop at your local grocery store to pick up a few bottles.

    The parking lot is packed. You find the only space available at the far side of the lot. Getting out of the car, you see sprinkles of rain on your windshield. Great! You grab your mask, an umbrella, and a reusable grocery bag, then head to the entrance.

    Once inside, you head to the wine section at the other end of the store. One entire aisle is filled with bottles from top to bottom. OMG! You don’t have time to figure out which ones you want.

    You know the ones at the bottom are rotgut, and the ones near the top are out of your budget. But you still have to choose from hundreds of wines.

    Ok, you decide to get two bottles of white and two bottles of red because you don’t want to come back tomorrow. Which ones to choose?

    You’ve heard of Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, so you head to those sections, but time is a-wasting. You don’t want to get stuck in rainstorm traffic.

    You see a few bottles on the shelves you recognize, and you see a few with really cool labels. The cool label ones are on sale!

    You grab two whites and two reds, stash them in your bag, then run to pick up a chicken in the deli, hoping they haven’t run out.

    With the last chicken in hand, you get in line to pay, but you’ll be here for at least another five minutes.

    While you run to your car in the rain, you’re asking yourself why you didn’t get the wine yesterday.

    Some People Do This

    Repeat the story above, but you’re at a liquor or big-box retail store. Instead of buying the bottles with the cool labels, you grab the wine bottles with the 90+ scores, adding them to your cart with a bottle of scotch or a six-pack of craft beer.

    The End Result

    After all the frustration of choosing, you get the wine home, open a bottle, and taste it. Ugh, this wasn’t what you wanted and certainly not worth what you paid.

    A lot of aggravation, little difference in the result. You paid too much for too little value.

    what you really want in wine

    What You Really Want

    Because of ever-expanding global competition, it’s a great time to be a wine lover, so how do you end up with such mediocre wine?

    You might have noticed every grocery or liquor store sells the same wine. This lack of choice, grape varieties, and higher prices results from the industry’s consolidation along each of the three-tiers.

    So, you get over-priced, mediocre wine, which isn’t going to change, but will likely get worse.

    Because of COVID-19, many small wine shop owners and retailers will likely go out of business. It will be harder to find alternatives.

    And the pandemic has reinforced what consumers are looking for but can’t find:

    • selection, taste, convenience, speed, value
    • fast, free delivery
    • a simple online selection process
    • good wine at fair prices
    • try different wines without risk
    • save time by having wine on hand without making extra trips

    So, what’s the alternative?

    the one tip you need in buying wine

    The One Tip You Need

    Want to know the one tip you need to get the wine experience you want?

    Find a wine retailer you can trust!

    The right wine professional will make recommendations for buying better wine while saving you money and time. They won’t force you into buying something you can’t afford or steer you only to highly rated wines.

    Critics can’t drink every wine in the world, leaving many excellent and available wines without scores. You miss out on wines of great value, the overlooked gems.

    Scores only matter if you like that style of wine, and, usually, buying based on the score ends up costing you more.

    If you use crowd-sourced wine applications, you get recommendations based on the average of people who responded. But the recommended wine might not suit your style and preferences. You might hate it!

    Even if you get on one of the thousands of mailing lists promising great, cheap wine, you probably have to buy 12 bottles. If you don’t like the wine once you get it, you’re stuck.

    Maybe you buy from friends’ recommendations. One friend might like high-end wine and another, orange wine. You might not prefer either of these! Not everyone drinks the same wine. Some people don’t even drink wine.

    Learn to make your own decisions through tasting and developing your unique palate with guidance from an expert.
