Tag: Ländersigi.hiss @ 11:14

Richard Woodard – US wine export volumes fell 15% in 2009, impacted by the global economic downturn and a tough year in the highly competitive UK market. According to figures released by California’s Wine Institute, shipments were down 14.9% to 417.9m litres, and dipped 9.5% by value to US$911.8m – after topping the US$1bn mark in a record-breaking 2008.

But Wine Institute president and CEO Bobby Koch pointed to a 16% rise in sales during the fourth quarter. ‚The California wine industry was not immune to the global recession, but fared better than most wine-producing countries,‘ he said.
