MIAMI, FLORIDA'S TOP SELLING WINES 2009

Posted by amour, Mar 31, 2010.

Three  Miami  wine  retailers  were  asked  to  name  their  top sellers.

Here are the results:

Coastline Cabernet Sauvignon  Paso Robles  California    $9.

Accuro Torrontes 2008  Mendoza  Argentina   $13.

Fess Parker Frontier Red Lot 82 non-vintage  California   $10.

 

They also named their best value wines as :

Conte Priola Pinot Grigio 2008   Veneto Italy  $7.

Gladius Tempranillo 2007 La Tierra de Castilla  Spain  $9.

Artesa Carneros Reserve Pinot Noir 2006   California $18.

 

It  would be interesting to hear from others what the best values are and also the top sellers.

Thank you!

Interesting - but the time-honored "why" question rears its head here.  Could you research further into the reasons behind the choices?

Good point, zufrieden !

Having worked on United Nations demography projects for several years, population composition comes to mind.

Miami is teeming with people who originated in South America.

There is, as you know, an overwhelming Spanish influence.

If you're going to post this kind of info, you should qualify it. Who 'says so', what are the conditions of the rankings, etc., etc.

In the case of the Miami information upon which I started this thread, I obtained it at the MIAMI INTERNATIONAL WINE FAIR.

I attended the fair both for  pleasure and  also because one of my companies had a presence there.

The Miami  retailers who gave the information were TOTAL WINE (Fort Lauderdale), SUNSET CORNERS WINE & LIQUORS(Coral Gables)owned by Michael Bittel.  A corporate consultant called Shayne Hebert, gave details  on behalf of another retailer.

I am off to a fine meal with fine wine and fine company!

CHEERS!

That helps put things in perspective, but even more background would be helpful.  With information, like wine, provenance is everything.

Hope you enjoyed your meal and wine.
