    Report findings were discussed in a videocast with Rob McMillan, EVP & founder of Silicon Valley Bank's Wine Division, Paul Mabray, Chief Strategy Officer of VinTank, Amy Hoopes, Chief Marketing Officer/EVP Global Sales at Wente Family Estates, and Jeff Bitter of Allied Grape Growers.

  • Baby Boomers Reduce Consumption

    While retaining the largest demographic footprint for wine consumption, Baby Boomers are now beginning a slow decline in consumption, which will accelerate in the next six years as the median-age Boomer reaches retirement age.
