Digital wine sales are booming right now, but will they last? Stacy Briscoe investigates in Wine Enthusiast.

On the blog for First Vine, Tom Natan wonders how accurate and reliable the current data for wine sales is. “We may be able to get a handle on this question once we have sales tax data from alcohol sales to compare to the previous year. But for now, who knows? We can say that people are drinking at home and seem to be buying more of the alcohol they can purchase for drinking at home, at least as far as we know from the data collected.  We don’t know how much, really, or what they’re actually drinking. I’m looking forward to getting the full story when we’re on the other side of the current crisis.”
