Important supplier countries for wine imports to Germany 2016-2018, by import volume

Italy was Germany’s main wine import partner, with over 5 million hectoliters imported in 2018. Other leading countries of origin for wine imports were European wine production heavyweights Spain and France, as well as South Africa.

White wine

Germany has a thriving wine production industry and the country is especially known for its white wines. This is reflected in wine production volume figures, with over 6.8 million hectoliters of white wine produced in 2018. Per capita wine consumption has fluctuated slightly among German consumers, amounting to 20.5 liters in 2018. At the same time, Germans definitely consumed more wine than sparkling wine, one of the reasons being simply the variety of German wines on the market, especially white ones, as mentioned before.

Decreasing export value

In 2018, German food retailers sold almost 931.7 bottles of wine (à 0.7 liters). Germany also exports its wines, though value has been mostly decreasing in recent years.
