2019 OIV Vitiviniculture Report

The OIV published their annual report with data through 2018 a few weeks ago. I find myself referring to this document often for high-level, international production and consumption data. Here are a few key highlights:

  • 2018 saw the highest global wine production by volume since 2004 driven by high yields throughout Europe.
  • Spain, France, and Italy, in descending order, have the largest area under vine for wine grapes.
  • Italy, Spain, and France, in descending order, are the largest producers of wine by volume.
