EXPORTS: HOLDING UP WELL DESPITE THE CRISIS

Tag: Länder,Regionensigi.hiss @ 10:58

Exports of Burgundy wines have risen sharply since mid-2005. Although 2008 did not start as strongly as 2007, the 2007/2008 sales campaign is still the second best campaign carried out in Burgundy (after 2006/2007) thanks to an excellent year-end in 2007.
The export market is the main sales driver for Burgundy wines allowing 51% of production to be sold. This figure exceeds that of all the other wine-growing regions in France.
The volume exported, over the twelve months ending July 2008, stood at 104.2 million units, which is a reduction of 2%. This fall is relative, as this figure represents nearly 10 million bottles more than the 2005/2006 campaign. Export earnings for the last campaign were up 3.5%, reaching almost 700 million euros.
Since the beginning of the year the effects of the crisis have been particularly felt on two of Burgundy wines‘ principal import markets: the UK and the USA. This fall has been partially compensated by growth in new markets such as Asia and South America.
