'Online wine too expensive' Ė survey

14 December, 2010

Potential online wine shoppers are put off because they think itís too expensive and donít want to pay for delivery, a You Gov survey for the Wine & Spirit Trade Association has shown.

The poll showed that 14% of British adults buy wine online, but a third say they would consider doing so in future.

WSTA chief executive Jeremy Beadles said: ďThese figures show there is clearly scope for growth in online wine sales.Ē
