Dining out more and spending more High frequency wine drinkers are apparently feeling better about their finances than the population in general, because 20 % of them are dining out more often. Nielsen’s survey also showed that 24 %are spending more on wine when they do. So, let’s have fun, you only live once.

The discovery continues

The fastest growing wine categories are not traditional picks like Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. Climbing the charts are sparkling; red blends from California and also still going strong, French rosé, reported Nielsen. So, let’s try this Malibu Pearl an Admirable white wine based on the rare Viognier varietal.

By-the-glass is number one

The number one factor prompting a diner to order wine is when the wine is available by the glass, the survey showed. Number two was if the wine goes with the food the diner ordered. The bad news, at least for wine writers and restaurant owners, was that the two least important factors out of nine in the survey were high scores from a critic and special restaurant promotions. So, Just trust your palate, be confident you cannot be wrong with our Admirable Malibu wines.

Italian food stimulates wine appetites

Drinking less but better: wine drinkers connected wine and food most frequently at Italian eateries. 64% of high frequency wine drinkers are very likely to order wine with Italian cooking, and 56% said the same of steakhouses. Japanese or sushi restaurants came out lowest. Pick rosé with Asian cuisine it is always perfect and with our So Happy rosé you will be.

Flavor favorites are yin and yang in nature

Consumers today are increasingly seeking polarizing taste profiles. According to us, top picks are fresh and refreshing whites, full-bodied reds (hence red blend upticks), with less styles in-between.

Cans are a thing, but will they last?

People are buying wine in cans at a much faster rate than a year ago, seemingly for different occasions than they buy wine in bottles. Cans are welcome at sporting events, beaches and parks where bottles are not allowed, but not every wine tastes good coming out of aluminum, said Curtis Mann, retail wine director of West Coast supermarket chain Raley’s. Admirable-Malibu being premium wines in limited quantities, we stick to glass bottles and real corks to protect their quality.
