In 2020, winegrowers in Germany produced 8.41 million hectolitres of wine including must. As reported by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), wine and must production thus increased by 187,500 hectolitres or 2.3 percent compared to 2019. Compared to the six-year average from 2014 to 2019, however, wine and must production in 2020 was 4.8 per cent lower. The forecast of the German Wine Institute (DWI) from October 2020 was 0.2 per cent higher.
67 percent and thus about two thirds of the wines produced in 2020 were white wines, 33 percent were red wines including Rosé and Rotling. Converted into 0.75-litre bottles, the wine and must production of 2020 amounts to about 1.1 billion bottles.
