Ever wonder how your favorite wine choices fit in with the general population.
According to the Wine Institute, in retail sales, the most popular wine types were Chardonnay (20% share), Cabernet Sauvignon (13%), Merlot (9%), Red Blends/Sweet Reds (9%) and Pinot Grigio (9%), followed by Moscato (6%), White Zinfandel (5%), Pinot Noir (4%), and Sauvignon Blanc (4%). Moscato, Malbec and Red blends experienced double digit growth, while after that, Pinot Grigio and Pinot Noir exhibited the next strongest upward trends.
No need to worry about a shortage of your favorite California wine.  The state enjoyed back to back record wine grape harvests in 2012 and 2013.
