GrapeConnect is the first to aggregate all available online grape and bulk wine listings into a single location. The above is our first attempt to leverage the aggregated listing data to drive meaningful pricing insights. That said, there are a few severe limitations with this quick analysis.
Primary Issue: The listed varietals are not separated by vintage, region, or any other parameter. As we compile more data in the coming months, we hope to not only display segregated analysis by vintage and region, but also build dynamic tools that allow you to understand how specific indicators –like Residual Sugar, Titratable Acidity, and Volatile Acidity, influence prices.
Nonetheless, we hope that these quick averages prove to be a meaningful benchmark as you look to understand the current online listing landscape; below are the average varietal prices from the above graph repeated highest-to-lowest:
|Petit Verdot||$34.14 per Gallon|
|Cabernet Sauvignon||$29.85 per Gallon|
|Malbec||$24.83 per Gallon|
|Mourvedre||$22.00 per Gallon|
