What have been the headlines affecting the wine category in 2018?

10. Where does the wine trade fit in the great recycling debate?

Soft drinks firms have long been under scrutiny when it comes to single-use plastic bottles. As the debate widens out to encompass more industries and all forms of sustainability, Chris Losh looks at what it means for the wine trade. 

9. Accolade Wines and Conviviality - The best and the worst of wine?

A supernova of activity, relatively speaking, in the wine industry earlier this year sent our wine commentator, Chris Losh, into a literary tailspin. Accolade Wines and Conviviality are to blame.

8. Concha y Toro Performance Trends 2013-2017 - results data

In late-March, Concha y Toro released its full-year results for 2017. The wine group posted a 1.2% sales rise for the 12 months, as its premiumisation strategy came to the fore. Here, just-drinks considers Concha's performance over the last five years.

7. What can the wine industry learn from Concha y Toro?

Concha y Toro is now several years into a value-driven strategy; one in which it has been prepared to sacrifice volume, if necessary, in order to sustain workable margins. For an industry that's spent most of the last 30 years doing the opposite, it's a bold move – particularly from such an influential operator.

6. Treasury Wine Estates Performance Trends 2014-2018 - results data

In mid-August, Treasury Wine Estates released its full-year results for fiscal-2018. The group saw its sales in the 12 months to the end of June rise in organic terms on the year-prior by almost 2%. Here, just-drinks considers TWE's performance over the past five years.

5. What will the wine consumer of the future look like?

Chris Losh is looking to the future in this, his latest postcard from the far edges of wine. Our wine category commentator reports on how the consumer of tomorrow is shaping up.

4. Why wine is dangerously exposed to the cannabis tidal wave

Talk to most of the world's winemakers about the issue of weed and they'll probably launch into a discussion on the merits or otherwise of using pesticides in between the vine rows. Ask the same question in North America, however, and the answer is likely to take the conversation in an entirely different direction.

3. Why the world's wine producers won't have it all their own way in China

Fresh off the plane after a trip to China, just-drinks' wine commentator, Chris Losh, brings us his take on the category in the country and finds that the greater threat to success for the world's wine producers comes from within.

2.  Where is the next opportunity? It's in Asia. And, in Asia, the opportunity is China" - South African wine gets serious in China

Of all the statistics bandied around at the Cape Wine exhibition in Cape Town in September, one in particular stood out: 37% of South African wineries don't make a profit. News & insights editor Andy Morton investigates.

1. Why water will be more important than wine in the years ahead

Changes to the global climate have long had an effect on wine producers. Recent extremes, however, have upped the ante. Wine commentator Chris Losh considers the drought-affected landscape of today, and warns of how the situation will likely deteriorate tomorrow.
