Spanish wine is a force to be reckoned with on the global wine scene, and its popularity has continued to grow over the years.

In 2018, exports to Portugal, France, and Germany increased, while those to the UK, the US, and China declined. Despite that performance, the general trend over the last 10 years has been positive.

Germany is Spanish wine producers’ main market, accounting for 14.6% of the total. France is in second place, with 12.7%, followed by the UK, with 9.9%, according to efeagro.com.
