By April 23, 2022Top News

The Champagne Bureau, USA announced in March that 34,119,758 bottles of Champagne were shipped to the United States in 2021, a 63.9% increase year-over-year in the adjusted final annual figures, and the most bottles shipped to any country outside of France. In addition, the value of these shipments reached more than $872.5 million in 2021, again the highest of any country outside of France. Globally, Champagne shipped 322 million bottles in 2021, an increase of 32% from 2020 as COVID-19 restrictions eased worldwide. “Champagne has bounced back as the United States made progress towards recovery from the global pandemic, including a return to in-person celebrations and fewer restrictions at restaurants and bars across the country,” said Jennifer Hall, director of the Champagne Bureau, USA.
