Strong Sales Bring Indies Christmas Joy - 19th January 2018
'Ted Sandbach, managing director at Oxford Wine Company, told DRN its sales were up 8% for December, compared to the same month in 2016.
"Month-on-month sales have been going up anyway for a long time now," he said. "Our retail arm is doing better than wholesale. Wholesale was down a bit over December but altogether we saw sales grow by 8%.
"People are definitely trading up and this is something that continued over Christmas. We didn't sell anything unusual but we sold more expensive wines. People spent £10-£15 a bottle instead of £5-£10. Italian wines did well for us this Christmas too."
