After a steep decline between 2007 and 2009, exports to the Netherlands had appeared to be getting back on their feet.

Unfortunately a decline in 2015, caused by a crash in white wine imports of -32%, was continued in 2016.

On the other hand, white exports to the Netherlands rebounded last year (+37%) at least making up the volumes lost in 2015.

In terms of price per litre, the Netherlands is split between 32% of imports priced at less than €3/l ex-cellar and 32% priced €4.5-€9/l.
