This January, Sovos ShipCompliant released the 2022 Direct-to-Consumer (DtC) Wine Shipping Report with our partner, Wines Vines Analytics. The report is the most comprehensive, complete and exclusive collection of data and insights on the state of the industry. Wine shipments to consumers reached a record $4.2 billion in 2021, meaning this is a fantastic time to delve into the DtC wine channel and learn more about the ever-evolving trends.

About the data

The Direct-to-Consumer Wine Shipping Report takes shipment data from more than 1,300 U.S. wineries’ shipments to consumers each month, totaling more than 42 million shipments over the course of 2021. As we gather information, each shipment is edited for submission for governmental tax and reporting requirements, and all elements are validated by standardized tables. The verified data is submitted to a proprietary model built on a database of 11,000+ wineries that is updated monthly by Wines Vines Analytics.

The report takes a deep dive into findings from 2021 including by winery region, winery size (production), varietal, destination of shipments and price to produce the most thorough analysis available of the DtC shiping channel. Here are some notable takeaways:
