2013 is shaping up to be a good year for wine producers.

Industry officials say U.S. wine sales are expected to grow by as much as eight percent this year -- despite fierce competition from imports. However, that's a slower rate of growth than in recent years.

Officials say the increase is good news for grape growers because wine producers are expected to buy more fruit this year.
