Wine.com sales top $100 million in first quarter of Fiscal Year 2021

Leading online wine retailer sees continued momentum after pandemic spike

/EIN News/ -- SAN FRANCISCO, July 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wine.com, the nation’s leading online wine retailer, closed the quarter ending June 30 with $106 million in revenue, representing 283% year-over-year growth.  This brought trailing 12-month revenue to $244 million, a 79% increase over the comparable year period.

Trailing 12-month highlights include:

  • Membership in StewardShip, Wine.com’s $49/year unlimited shipping program, surged as consumers shifted from in-store to online shopping.  Revenue from these loyal and highly valuable customers reached $128 million, an increase of 92%. 
  • Revenue from mobile devices increased 86% to $82 million despite consumers being at home with constant access to computers, underscoring Wine.com customers’ high level of engagement and the utility of its 4.8 star mobile app (45,000 reviews).
  • Revenue from Millennials and Generation Z, important growth engines for the wine industry, maintained its accelerated trajectory reaching $66M, an increase of 121%. 
  • Wine.com launched a series of virtual wine tastings during the quarter, hosting 20 events viewed by 40,000 households.

“The last quarter has fundamentally changed our growth trajectory,” said Rich Bergsund, Wine.com CEO. “We’re seeing new levels of engagement across all customer segments, and particularly our StewardShip members, as consumers are committing to Ecommerce.”
