Spain Rules Wine Exports

Spain has moved ahead of both France and Italy to regain its position as the world's number one exporter of wine.

Observatorio Español del Mercado del Vino (OeMv) data about the Spanish wine market indicates that Spain led the world in terms of wine exports in 2017, with international sales of 22.8 million hectoliters. Spain has now moved ahead of its main competitors, Italy and France – with 21 million and 15 million hectares respectively – in the world of wine exports.

According to statements made by OeMV general manager Rafael del Rey to Euronews, the quality and reputation of Spanish wines is very good.

Additionally, previously released OeMV studies on 2017 Spanish wine exports have shown that the average price increased by around 6.7% with regard to the previous year. These higher prices are also a reflection of the fact that exports of still, bottled wines, and particularly those with Protected Denomination of Origin status, are increasing, while bulk exports are decreasing.
