The California wine industry catapulted in the 70s thanks to thirsty baby boomers. Today, wine marketers are on the lookout for the next generation of wine lovers to cater to. Though Millennials are not a group to rule out, experts suggest focusing on Gen X. Currently in their 40s and 50s, this group buys a higher volume of wine at a higher price, and the average income is $95,000 per year.
We have talked about how to reach millennials through Instagram, but don’t forget that Gen X is a valuable market as well.
