WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - New Year's Eve gives people who work in wine shops a financial boost, as champagne sales pop.

The owner of Wilmington Wine on Castle Street ordered an extra 100 bottles of bubbly in preparation for the rush.

"Today is unique obviously because of the holiday and everybody drinks champagne," said owner Michael Dolan.  "Everybody drinks some kind of sparkling for New Year's Eve."

New Year's Eve is the biggest selling day for sparkling wine sales.
