Bibendum: Top wine trends for 2019

With the end of the year in sight, and Christmas festivities on the horizon, now is a time to reflect on the past year, but also speculate on what the next 12 months could bring.

While the drinks business will be putting forth its own wine and spirits trend predictions for 2019 in the coming weeks, and has already considered what trends will dominate the UK retail sector in 2019, Bibendum has also set out its thoughts. Publishing its 2019 trend report, the on-trade wine supplier has laid out what it thinks will be the trends shaping the wine industry over the coming year.

While a trend for veganism looks set to dominate the hospitality industry, will 2019 be the year it makes a significant mark on the drinks industry? Croatian vineyards could be making more headlines in 2019, if Bibendum’s predictions prove true. And while the world’s big origin wine producers will continue to drive the bulk wine market, a keen interest in lesser-known regions and indigenous varieties is beginning to infiltrate the mainstream, its forecasts suggest.

Will their predictions stack up?
