Which wine is the bestseller in the US? Looking at the top-ten list recently published by The Wine Economist, it is a wine called Barefoot, which is made by the large wine company Gallo. The average price for this wine is $ 5.64 and Barefoot made $ 622 million between June 15 2014 and June 15 2015. If you look a little closer at the Barefoot brand you will see that there are at least 15 different Barefoot wines, in all colours and still and sparkling. Some are flavoured and there is even a Sparkling Champagne California. The Prosecco however seems to be from Italy.
There is only one non-US wine on the top-ten top-list, the Australian Yellow Tail. This one you can get in even more versions than Barefoot, I counted 29 different Yellow Tails on their site.
