Mrz 25 2013 Cava exports at record high in 2012

Tag: Allgemeinessigi.hiss @ 14:06

According to the Cava Consejo Regulador, producers sold over 161m bottles to foreign markets in 2012 – a 6% increase over 2011. In contrast, 81m bottles were sold in Spain in 2012, a 6% fall from the 87m figure recorded in 2011. The high Spanish level of unemployment and economic crisis are cited as the main culprits.

However, the Consejo reported an overall Cava sales rise of 1.5% – 243m bottles in total were sold in 2012, as opposed to 239m in 2011. Patrice Lesclaux, export manager for Castillo Perelada in Emporda said that Cava was increasingly seen as a ‚must have‘ listing for distributors worldwide.

‚Today, almost all relevant wine importers around the world want to have at least one Cava in their portfolio, as the consumer appreciates Cava for its optimal value for money‘, he said. Germany is currently Cava’s most important foreign market: in 2012 over 39m bottles were sold to German importers.


Jan 16 2013 South Africa exports record volumes of wine

Tag: Ländersigi.hiss @ 11:28

by Richard Woodard – South Africa exported a record-breaking 417m litres of wine last year – but bulk shipments continued to account for more than half of volumes. The figures for 2012 showed a 17% increase over 2011 and were 10m litres above the previous record year, 2008, said Wines of South Africa (WoSA).

Favourable exchange rates, a global wine shortage and small harvests in Europe, Latin America and Australia and New Zealand were the main factors behind the growth. However, WoSA CEO Su Birch said bulk wines accounted for 59% of 2012 volumes, something which she said was part of a ‘growing global trend’.

Birch added, ‘Obviously we would prefer the accent to be on packaged wines in terms of job retention in the packaging industry and also to maintain sustainable profit margins for producers.’ Continue reading „ South Africa exports record volumes of wine“

Mrz 08 2012 Australian imports up, exports down, winemakers unfazed

Tag: Ländersigi.hiss @ 14:18

by Adam Lechmere – Australian wine imports increased significantly while exports fell last year – and there was a marked increase in the value of domestic wine sales.Australian Shiraz

While the volume of Australian wine sold in the domestic market fell by 1.5%, the value of domestic sales surged by 9.8%, prompting some winemakers to welcome what is certainly an increase in quality of the domestic product.

At the same time, Australia imported more wine than ever: 67m litres worth AU$470.7m, an increase of 4.2% in volume and 2.6% in value compared with the year before.

Exports last year fell: 746.6m litres were exported worth AU$1.9bn, Australian Bureau of Statistics figures released yesterday show.

Although the official figures for the year have just come out, the situation has been known about for months, and prompted one Wine Australia spokesman to joke that any Australian caught drinking foreign wine ‘should have his strides pulled down’.

But most winemakers seem unfazed by the increase in imports. Speaking to Continue reading „ Australian imports up, exports down, winemakers unfazed“

Feb 23 2012 Cava exports hit all-time high

Tag: Regionensigi.hiss @ 11:44

by Rebecca Gibb – Record Cava exports have brightened up the Spanish sparkling wine’s bleak domestic market in 2011. codorniuCava producers sold a record breaking 152 million bottles to foreign markets in 2011 – a 2% increase over 2010 – but poor domestic sales were mainly to blame for a 2% fall in overall sales in 2011.

Taking into consideration current economic conditions, the Cava regulatory board chairman, Gustavo García Guillamet, said ‚it is very positive to claim that cava sales achieved a record figure in the foreign market‘. However, sales in Spain have been difficult within the domestic market, compounded by an unemployment rate of more than 22%. During the last quarter of 2011, Cava sales suffered an ‚unexpected‘ fall of 8.7% compared to 2010. Continue reading „ Cava exports hit all-time high“

Bordeaux wine exports regain ground - CIVB
Bordeaux wine exports regain ground – CIVB

Global exports of Bordeaux wines staged a significant comeback last year, driven by particularly strong demand from China, according to trade body the Conseil Interprofessionel du Vin du Bordeaux (CIVB).

In sharp contrast to what the CIVB described as “a catastrophic year” in 2009, exports in calendar 2010 rose by 14% in volume to 1.77m hectolitres and by 17% in value to EUR1.51bn (US$2.1bn).

Germany was the leading export market by volume, just ahead of China. Hong Kong was the premier destination for Bordeaux wines in value terms, followed by the UK and China.

There was a 6% rise in volumes shipped to the US, although exports fell by 28% by value.

Despite a “good recovery”, the CIVB highlighted the precarious position of many Bordeaux producers due to insufficient levels of business. The sector lost around 1m hectolitres of production between 2008 and 2009.
