Every month we post a wine related poll. Often these polls can be very informative and provide some interesting trends. And sometimes they are just downright fun!
ENJOY!


Here are some of the results from our craigswine polls.

November 2017

“When at home, how do you match your wine and food?”

  • Select the food then the wine – 53%
  • Don’t care as long as I have wine – 26%
  • You’re supposed to eat when you drink? – 16%
  • Wine first then the food – 5%
  • Depends on what is in the fridge or pantry – 0%

A slight majority (53%) have chosen food first…then wine.

The others (47%)  have clearly prioritized the wine above all. Close one eh!

October 2017

“What are your thoughts on stemless wine glasses?”

  • Hate ’em – 41%
  • Love them – 24%
  • They’re OK because they don’t tip over as easily – 20%
  • Like both stem and stemless glasses – 15%

 I’m surprised ‘Love them’ wasn’t number one, considering how many stemless glasses we sell. Unless someone who hates them voted several times.

September 2017

‘Which Country does your favourite wine come from?

  • Italy – 50%
  • U.S.A – 32%
  • Australia – 6%
  • France – 6%
  • Canada – 6%
  • Spain & Chile – 0%

Wow, Italy is the favourite! Nice to at least see Canadian wines in the mix.

July 2017

 ‘Which is your favourite varietal?

  • Shiraz – 25%
  • Sauvignon Blanc – 25%
  • Merlot – 15%
  • Carmenere – 15%
  • Pinot Grigio – 5%
  • Chardonnay – 5%
  • Riesling – 5%
  • Cabernet Sauvignon – 5%

Interesting, the trend is now towards Sauvignon Blanc (white) and believe it or not Carmenere (red). We are definitely selling more Carmenere these days.

‘Where is your favourite place to relax and enjoy a glass/bottle of your favouite wine?

  • Backyard – 50%
  • Front Porch – 17%
  • Cottage – 11%

Wow! Didn’t see that one coming. I guess home is where the heart is…and obviously the wine too!

APRIL 2017

 I guess the results of this poll were downright truthful…cheers!

    I’m with th 41% I’m afraid. But maybe it’s just old school in thinking it tastes better!
