I'm glad to see the price holding at under $20. Here's something from a wine industry journal (local restaurants take note):

Restaurants from New York to San Francisco and everywhere in between are offering heavy discounts, waiving corkage fees and hosting BYOB nights.

Many consumers are not buying less wine when they go shopping, but buying cheaper wine, according to marketing research firms. The hottest categories are wines priced between $10 and $20 and wines for under $10. "It looks like we're having a pretty good January," said Keith Love, vice president of Chateau Ste. Michelle Wine Estates in Washington. He noted that 99 percent of Ste. Michelle's 2 million-case production is priced at $10 to $20 a bottle. "We're not anticipating any damage to that business."

Yeah, the $10 to $20 range is the sweet spot.

Think what would happen if even 20 percent of all of the money Tacomans spend on wine was spoured (pardon the pun) into Tacoma's local economy.

I seem to remember hearing/reading that one market that's always steady in a sagging economy is alcohol. I'll drink to that!
