Coming Soon to the Wine Aisle

The oldest members of iGeneration will celebrate their 24th birthdays in 2019 and at Wine Opinions, we are beginning to track these youngest wine drinkers as a segment to compare to the youngest Millennials, ages 25 – 29.

In her book, “iGen,” Jean M. Twenge Ph.D., a professor of social psychology, notes that they are the first generation to have spent their entire adolescence in the age of the smartphone, and that social media and texting have replaced other activities for them. How their social media and technology habits intersect with their wine shopping behaviors will be a subject of great interest to wine marketers.

The chart on the right lays out the age ranges of the generations as defined by American Generations and the Pew Research Center. Wine Opinions uses the definitions set in the 8th edition of American Generations to analyze and report on these groups. You will find more thoughts on generations and how their names and age ranges are determined in our latest blog entry.
