Canada Landscapes 2018 7 6 180x180 - Canada Landscapes 2018

The latest Wine Intelligence report on the Canadian wine market – Canada Landscapes 2018 – provides an overview of the consumption behaviour and attitude towards wine among Canadian regular wine drinkers, with a particular focus on regular wine drinkers based in English-speaking provinces of Canada compared to those based in Québec, as well as the latest trends observed by the trade over the past year. Below are some of the key highlights included in the report:

  1.  There is growing importance of grocery and convenience as a wine-buying channel allowing the Canadian wine consumers greater access to wine on an everyday basis – although there is some lack of trust among consumers for buying wine in a grocery store
  2. The Canadian wine market remains in steady growth, particularly in the premium wine sector
  3. As of summer 2018, if all goes according to plan, the use and sale of cannabis will be legalised. Some of the trade fear this will be a threat to the growing wine market in Canada
