According to the latest figures, Hardys has retained pole position, with a total of £315.7m in value sales for the 52 weeks to July 2016, despite a 3% dip on the previous year (£325.8m).

Blossom Hill also held onto its number two spot, although it slid by 15% from £243.2m in 2014/2015 to £207.9m in 2015/2016.

In third place, Echo Falls was up 3% from £188.5m to £194.1m, while Concha y Toro brand Casillero del Diablo, leaped from eighth to fourth place with a highest average bottle price in the top ten.

In 2015/2016, Casillero del Diablo saw their second highest value growth year-on-year, up 34% from last year, thanks in part to its partnership with Sky Cinema, which was extended in March 2016 for a further 12 months.

"We have just launched a new national on pack campaign on over four million Casillero del Diablo bottles, giving consumers a chance to win a Sky TV package every month and the Ultimate Home Cinema package.

"We are hugely ambitious for the brand, and expect it to continue to add value to the wine category and make further advances in the next few years. "

But the brand which saw the most growth was California's Barefoot, with value sales rising an impressive 37.45% to £107.3m.

Barefoot jumped from tenth place on last's year's list to sixth.

There was slowing growth for Gallo, Isla Negra and Jacobs Creek, which made up the second half of the list.
