'Cocooning' - staying at home to drink - is now a neccesity for many in Western Europe due to the economic climate, rather than a lifestyle choice like it was in the 1990s. 

That was one of a number of nuggets that emerged from a Euromonitor briefing at the London International Wine Fair this week.
