New data from YouGov has found the most popular wine brands sold in America! And I have to say that at first glance I’m pretty surprised. But once I gave it a little more thought I realized that several of these brands (that might not have made my favorite wines list) are some of the most affordable options. Therefore they are accessible to the most amount of people. Also several of these wines come in sweeter more fruity varieties than just typical wine blends. This also increases their popularity among people who may not like a Cabernet or Chardonnay. And that’s not say I haven’t enjoyed a glass or wouldn’t drink them again. Just not all would be my absolute favorite.
But that doesn’t mean they are all cheaper wines. In fact, some are wines I do drink regularly. I love a good Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay. And a couple of varieties of Robert Mondavi wines made the list as well. Some of these are wineries on my Napa Valley bucket list. But at the top of the list is Francis Ford Coppola-yes, the same guy who wrote/produced/directed ‘The Godfather.’ According to collected data, Coppola is the second most recognized name in wine and the number one winery among drinkers.
