The three export markets for wine to watch in 2019

3. Italy (0.26)


According to the annual survey, Italy is set to see a further decline in appeal for producers next year.

This is largely down to Italy’s status as a powerhouse of producing popular, affordable wines exported around the world. Italy is the European leader for certified wines, accounting for 543 of the 1,586 total, followed by France (435), Greece (147), Spain (131) and Portugal (40), according to financial firm UniCredit’s industry report this year. In 2017, DOP and IGP wines made up two-thirds of total output, with a value of production of €6.8 billion.
