WORLDWIDE WINE PRODUCER REGION
Each year we discover more countries producing wine. For instance, did you know there are vineyards in the Gobi Desert? It’s no doubt that up-and-coming wine regions are intriguing, but there are just 10 countries producing 80% of the wine on the planet. Let’s take a closer look at the top wine producing regions of the world.
The top 3 major wine regions of the world are France, Italy and Spain. They produce almost half of all the wine produced in the world. To help you wrap your brain around the sheer volume of wine they make:
While France and Italy compete for the top wine production
region of the world they are also reducing wine production every year. France
has lowered production by 11% since 2007.
Italy may be second to France, but there is a growing
trend in both countries to remove vineyards. Italy has reduced their
production by at least 7% since 2007.
Spain is home to the largest vineyard acreage in the
world. Despite this fact, Spain also has much lower wine yields than
neighboring France and Italy resulting in less total wine.
90% of wine from the United States is from California.
California is home to the world’s largest wine producer, Gallo, in Modesto,
Argentina continues to grow their wine production year
after year resulting in the highest growth rate (8%) of the top 5 wine
producers in the world. Argentina relies on wine exports.
Australia relies primarily on the wine export market.
Since the US dollar has weakened, Australia is expanding their wine marketing
in Hong Kong and Asia.
German wine is known for their aromatic white wines.
German wines are exported primarily to US and UK.
South Africa has long been known
for its Chenin Blanc and produces the largest volume of Brandy in the world
Chile is proud of the red wine
variety Carmenere, known as the ‘lost varietal’ of Bordeaux. Still, export
markets demand traditional varieties.
Portugal is known for Port wine, a high alcohol dessert wine from
northern Portugal made by blending several grape varieties.
It’s useful to know what the most popular types of wine are in each of the top producing countries for two reasons: value and quality.
Take a closer look at the regions above including Germany, Italy, Australia and Argentina. Each of these countries focus on a distinct wine variety. For instance, Spain produces the highest volume of Tempranillo in the world. This means that Spain produces both the most value Tempranillo as well asthe best Tempranillo in the world.
The next time you buy wine from these top regions, focus on what their exceptional wines are. You are more likely to find something you’ll enjoy.
