Wine Trends Millennials Have Kept The Wine World LIT AF With

Top 5 trends we as millennials have brought into the old world of wine to keep it on fleek

I sometimes feel like Millennials get a bad rap in life. From the odd lingo, to the creation of the selfie stick but when it comes to the wine world they deserve some credit. Millennials are generation Y&Z and it spans the years 1980 to 2010. According to http://www.timeinc.net , Millennials drank over 159.6 million cases of wine last year, they even raised the average drink per sitting from 2.5 to 3.1 glasses and they aren’t even taking the cheap way, 17% of millennial’s buy a bottle that costs over $20. There are so many other factors that they have helped in the wine industry with all these new trendy ways to bring the youngin’s into the old world of wine. Here are the top five wine trends that you can stay the most ‘lit’ off of:
