Hoboken, NJ – The past few years have seen a rapid expansion of the global wine market, a trend expected to continue through 2019. The growing success of the wine industry can be attributed to many factors including new label trends and packaging such as wine in cans, boxes and kegs, along with the rise of online retail. These innovations have helped to make selecting wine less intimidating and more fun, which has contributed to the growth of a younger population of wine enthusiasts.
