Wine market in Europe - Statistics & Facts

European countries are among the world’s most prolific wine producers. Three European countries famous for their wine industries, Italy, France and Spain, topped the world’s leading countries in wine production in 2020. The three countries also accounted for a significant share of the global vineyard surface area, largely owing to their Mediterranean climate, which has historically made wine-growing flourish in these areas. Other market leaders in wine production on the European continent include Germany, Portugal and Romania. Germany was the fourth largest producer of wine in Europe, with 8.4 million hectoliters of wine produced in 2020. In that year, the size of the European wine market exceeded 147 billion U.S. dollars and was predicted to continue growing to more than 219 billion U.S. dollars by 2025.

Wine trade

Home to some of the world’s most exquisite wines, European countries were not only among the leading wine-producing countries worldwide, but they also topped the list for the leading exporters of wine globally.

While European imports of wine remained relatively constant over the last decade, European wine exports witnessed an upward trend, increasing from around 15.88 million hectoliters in 2010 to more than 22 million hectoliters in 2020.
