We are used to describe the wines according to their organoleptic qualities, our tastes, where they come from or vintage, but what if we start to think about the sales? What are the best-selling wine brands in the world? Surely in the ranking we are going to present, you will find many surprises ... In fact, the first thing that may draw attention is the total absence of French, Italian or Spanish brands.
10. Jacob’s Creek. A range of Australian wines belonging to the multinational Pernod Ricard who have experienced tremendous growth in emerging markets like Chinese or Japanese, with nearly 7 million of 9 L cases sold.
9. Lindeman’s. With 7 million cases sold, the brand owned by the Australian company Treasury Wine Estates, based in Hunter Valley has a large circulation in the UK market, thanks to its great value for money, including its new selection of “discoveries" from South Africa and Chile.
8. Beringer. From the same company, this label is well known in households andestablishments in the United States, thanks to sponsorship activity of sporting events such as the PGA golf tour, already reaching the figure of 8 million cases sold.
