AUS: Foster's sees US wine sales rise - figures
Foster's has lifted wine sales to the US for the first time in nine months, according to figures from AC Neilsen.
The company today (19 August) posted a 2% gain in the value of wine sold in July compared to the same month a year earlier, the first month of like-for-like growth since October last year.
The best-performing brands were Bohemian Highway, which was up by 81%, and Chateau St John, up by 21%. However, sales of Beringer and Lindemans, Foster's biggest brands in the US market, were flat for the month, while Rosemount was down by 15% and Wolf Blass down by 10%.
