How are your sparkling wine sales going?

"They are generally good. We sell about three or four cases a week because there are so many varieties now. We sell nine or 10 varieties, such as Jacob's Creek, Freixenet, Chenet, Lindemans

and Wolf Blass. Sales have been generally high over the past few years."

"Non-Champagne sparkling wine is selling very well, particularly Champagne-style blends. We noticed an increase in Prosecco sales about nine months ago, but that seems to have tailed off now. We now stock another Prosecco-style wine from Italy that's like a fruitier Champagne which sells well."
