World Wine Output Rebounds after 15 Year Low


If you were afraid of a potential shortage of wine following a 15 year low in wine production you can breathe a sigh of relief as the International Organization for Vine and Wine (OIV) reports wine production in 2018 hit record highs.

The Paris-based agency revealed wine output across the world saw a year-on-year surge of 17 per cent, attributed mostly to increased production in Italy, France and Spain.

France not only produces much of the world’s wine, it also consumes it. France was the world’s second highest consumer of wine, reaching 26.8 million hectolitres exceeded only by The USA, consuming 33 million hectolitres.
