UK wine imports: Leading five countries of origin, by value 2017-2019

France and Italy were the top two countries of origin for wine imported into the United Kingdom in 2019. In this year, imports from France surpassed Italian wine imports. The import value from the top five countries of origin came to approximately 2.17 billion British pounds in 2019, of which 754 million came from France alone.

Wine trade

Imports of wine to the UK predominantly came from the European Union. Other countries in Western and Eastern Europe only had a minor share of UK wine imports. Besides Australia and Oceania one other region supplied imports of a notable size. With over 286 million worth of wine Latin America supplied more wine than any single country except for France and Italy.

Wine consumption

Of those who drank wine, the majority did so on a weekly basis. Household purchases of table wine had been experiencing a decreasing trend in favor of increased champagne and sparkling wine purchases. While the latter was still on the upswing in 2017/18, the former category recovered and saw purchases almost as high as in 2011 and 2006.
