Beaujolais UK exports continue rising

Exports of Beaujolais wines to the UK have continued to rise in the first half of the year, showing increased growth since February.

Compared to the same period in 2018, exports of Beaujolais have risen 35% in volume overall and 9% in value.

From a small base, exports of rosé increased 194% in volume and 120% in value while exports of Beaujolais Villages have increased 22% in volume and 15% in value.

Anthony Collet, marketing and communication director for InterBeaujolais, said: “We are delighted to see continued growth in Beaujolais exports to the UK. With an increased effort on trade activities regionally and looking ahead to our annual tasting next month, we feel confident for the future of this very important market for Beaujolais. There’s a lot of ‘Beaujo’ love in the UK and we look forward to welcoming the trade at the ICA in June.”

The annual Beaujolais trade tasting is taking place on 10 June at the Institute of Contemporary Arts.

There will be wines from 75 producers, 38 of them seeking representation, from across the region’s appellations and crus as well as two masterclasses; one with Natasha Hughes MW looking at winemaking techniques in the region and one with Joe Wadsack on the region’s terroirs.
