Top 10 Sauvignon Blancs 2014

The Most Popular Sauvignon Blanc's In The UK

Today marks international Sauvignon Blanc day, an initiative started in California five years ago which is now used worldwide as a great excuse to celebrate one of the worlds most popular and most accessible grapes.

We’re in a really lucky position at Wines Direct as we get to watch wine trends like Prosecco and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc rise from a market wide perspective. Whether it’s the sudden surge in people heading to our brand, region and product pages or the rise in supermarket alternatives to most popular brands.

We wanted to put our data to good use and produce a top 10 chart of the most popular Sauvignon Blanc's sold in the UK over the past year.

With the weather on our side at the weekend for once, there's no better time to sit back in the sun and sip a lovely Sauvignon Blanc. You can even join in the celebration using #SauvBlanc on twitter.
