Global wine exports fell by 0.9 per cent in the period from June 2021 to June 2022. At the same time, the value of exports increased by 10.9 per cent. This is shown by current figures from the Spanish Wine Market Observatory (OeMv). The global average price per litre rose by 11.8 per cent to 3.36 euros. 52 per cent of the export volume is accounted for by still bottled wines, with the largest increase in sparkling wine. Exports for sparkling wines rose by 14 per cent in terms of volume, and by as much as 27.8 per cent in value. The figures confirm on the one hand the trend towards premiumisation of consumption, and on the other hand the growing interest in sparkling wines.
Looking at the most important export countries, France leads with 11,759 million euros and an average price per litre of 8.16 euros, ahead of Italy, which has a significantly lower price level. Exports of Italian wine were worth 7,564 million euros and a litre cost an average of 3.40 euros. In terms of volume, however, Italy was ahead of Spain (2,195 million litres, -3%) and France (1,440 million litres, -0.6%) with 2,224 million litres (+3.8%).
Sales of bulk wine also showed a negative development. It still accounted for almost a third of the total export volumes, but only 7 per cent of the value. Volumes fell by 1.9 per cent and value by 2.5 per cent. The market for bag-in-boxes also declined. Sales declined by 11 per cent, but the value remained stable.
