Vineyards in Spain should be celebrating, after the publication of export data from 2018. The statistics show that it was a record year for export revenues, for both packaged and bulk wine. A total of 1.986 billion litres was exported from Spain.
Packaged wine exports, including both still and sparkling wines, bag in box, and naturally effervescent wines, expanded by 0.4% value partly due to an average price increase of 11%.
The main import market for these wines is the UK, which is the primary customer in terms of both value and volume. Canada and Mexico have increased their imports of packaged wines from Spain.
