Polish wine productionIn Poland, the financial year for wine production starts on August 1 and ends on July 31 of the following year. In the 2021/2022 season, there were 380 wine producers registered nationwide, which was a total increase of 51 newly recorded manufacturers since the previous season. Out of those, over one-fifth were located in the Małopolskie (Lesser Poland) voivodeship. As a result, the southern region was also the undisputed leader regarding the number of national vineyards. Despite that, the largest wine-growing area is actually located in the Lubuskie region (western Poland).
Wine consumption and salesThanks to the greater availability of various types of wine in stores, Poles have learned to enjoy this alcoholic beverage – the average wine consumption per capita has seen an increase since 2018. Wine is enjoyed mainly by people aged between 25 and 34 years old, with women constituting a higher share of Polish wine drinkers than men.
Since 2015, wine has still maintained the highest price per unit, being always slightly above the average price, where the average projected price per unit of wine in 2027 is likely to be 10.9 U.S. dollars. In 2021, Poles could purchase a bottle of dry white wine for an average retail price of 22.08 zloty, which was the lowest price since 2017.
