If you are a wine connoisseur the chances are you have already heard about which wines will be a hit in 2018. If you haven’t heard yet or are more of a novice to the world of wine don’t worry, we have the solution.

We will be going over some of the top wine trends that 2018 will have so sit back and relax.
We might all have a favourite country or region to buy wine from but keeping an open mind and experimenting can open up your wine world. China, Chile and Georgie are countries to look out for in 2018 with some great wines coming soon.

The world of wine does have a sense of snobbery about it on occasion and if the next trend is going to take off certain movements will have to change their way of thinking. Canned wine is due to make a bigger impact on 2018 due to how much easier it is.

Younger generations have already embraced the idea of wine in cans but traditionalists might take a bit longer to convince.

As well as wine in a can, draft wine is going to be a lot more popular due to the overwhelming benefits including it being more environmentally friendly and efficient.

While cross pollination and collaboration might have been happening for a while in the beer and whisky world it could creep into the wine industry in 2018 opening up a whole new world of flavour and experience for its drinkers.

Living in an age when we hear constant talk about organic, gluten free, natural products it was only a matter of time that the wine industry took notice. Natural wines that don’t add or remove anything unnaturally and is farmed organically is starting to find its niche and 2018 could be the year that it is taken a bit more seriously.

The last trend we will look at is one that started in 2017 and looks set to continue into 2018. That is the fall of champagne. Once seen as THE sparkling wine, its demise has been encouraged by the unprecedented rise to glory of Prosecco. As far as price and taste go it is obvious why it has made such an impact on the industry.

We are sure there will be some surprises yet to come in 2018 and we can’t wait to see what the wine industry as a whole has instore for us.
