Paris-based International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV) has just revealed stats of the top ten countries that drank the most wine in 2020.
Global Consumption has fallen to its lowest point since 2002. OIV reports that that overall wine consumption had fallen three percent to 234 million hectolitres in 2020 – around 6.2 billion gallons. In terms of market value, OIV puts the total exports of wine-producing countries at an estimated 29.6 billion euros ($35.6 billion), a figure that would represent a fall of nearly seven percent.
OIV maintains that these numbers are an estimate.
“With the exception of Prosecco, sparkling wine is the category of wines that suffered the most in 2020,” the organization states.
