As a result, there are more styles to choose from and greater distribution in the U.S. than ever before.”Viewed together, the sustained growth of exports along with retail sales figures tell a story of rosé growth that continues to far outpace the U.S. wine market as a whole. Linkedin According to Nielsen research, U.S. retail sales of imported rosé wines priced at $12 or more per bottle grew by 41% on volume and 53% on value in 2014, capping ten straight years of documented double-digit growth. This is compared to growth rates of 1.0% on volume and 3.3% on value for the total table wine market. In addition, the average price per bottle in this category increased to $16.83, a sign that “consumers are seeking out premium rosé – a segment in which Provence continues to be the leader,” Millo said.Provence Spring Trade and Media Tastings Coming to Three Cities in MarchMedia and wine industry professionals will have the opportunity to sample wines from more than 25 Provence wineries in March as part of the “Provence in the City” 2015 spring tasting tour.
