Restaurant Sciences LLC, an independent firm that tracks food and beverage product sales throughout the foodservice industry in North America, reported that the sales of on-premise wine fell 2.6 percent from May to October of this year, compared to the same timeframe in 2012.

Despite the overall decline, wine sales saw a 10 percent growth in family dining and limited-service restaurants during this period.

"Despite growth in several categories, overall wine sales fell because bars and nightclubs sold 17.7 percent less wine from May to October 2013 than the previous year," said Chuck Ellis, president and CEO of Restaurant Sciences LLC. "On a positive note, wine sales in quick-service restaurants grew 10.2 percent over this same period. With an estimated 12 percent of 30,000 fast casual locations distributing wine, this segment provides ample opportunity for expansion, and we expect the wine industry to take notice."
