Perhaps the most compelling headline from this year’s Global SOLA study is the fact that the tide is rising for all alternative wines. Our second annual report about ‘alternative’ wines, which we have classified as Sustainable, Organic, Lower Alcohol and other alternative wines (SOLA for short), provides an in-depth look at alternative wine opportunity across 15 global wine markets.
