2017 WORLD WINE PRODUCTION

2017 World wine production estimated at 246.7 mhl, a fall of 8.2% compared with 2016

 

A historically low 2017 production especially in Western Europe due to unfavorable climate conditions:

  • Very low production in Europe: production levels were at a historic low in Italy (39.3 mhl), France (36.7 mhl) and Spain (33.5 mhl). Germany (8.1 mhl) also recorded low production.
  • Portugal (6.6 mhl), Romania (5.3 mhl), Hungary (2.9 mhl) and Austria (2.4 mhl) were the only countries to see a rise compared with 2016.

World wine production, excluding juice and musts, is likely to reach 246.7 mhl –an 8% drop compared with 2016 and one of the lowest levels for several decades. This drop is consecutive to climate hazards, which affected the main producing countries, particularly in Europe.

In the European Union (EU), extreme weather events – from frost to drought – significantly impacted 2017 wine production, which was historically low. Indeed, the forecasts of the three main producing countries saw a decrease compared with 2016 production. Italy confirmed its place as the leading world producer for the third year running in 2017 (39.3 mhl, -23%/2016), followed by France (36.7 mhl, -19%/2016) and Spain (33.5 mhl, - 15%/2016). This reduction was recorded in the main EU countries. Germany (8.1 mhl, -10%/2016) and Greece (2.5 mhl, -10%/2016) fall in line with this downward trend. Bulgaria (1.1 mhl, - 2%/2016), saw a production level in keeping with its potential. Portugal (6.6 mhl), Romania (5.3 mhl), Hungary (2.9 mhl) and Austria (2.4 mhl) were the only countries to record a rise compared with 2016. After two poor harvests, Romania returned to a high level of production.
