Wine prices increase by 13p a bottle

24 August, 2010

The average price of a 75cl bottle of wine has leapt from £4.27 to £4.40 in the past year, according to official figures.

Nielsen data for the 12 months to July 10 found that off-trade prices were up by an average of 13p, thanks partly to duty increases.

All the main exporting countries saw their average bottle price rise with the exception of New Zealand, which saw its figure fall from £6.39 to £6. The decrease has been blamed on price discounting in UK multiples, something which is likely to be curbed following the smaller 2010 vintage.

But New Zealand remains comfortably ahead of France, number two in the pricing league table with an average retail of £5.03 a bottle, up from £4.73 a year ago.
