U.S. Wine Exports Show Solid Performance Amid Challenges

By May 22, 2019Top News

U.S. wine exports, over 90% from California, reached $1.47 billion in winery revenues and 375 million liters (41.7 million cases) in 2018. Total exports were down 4.8% in value and 1.2% in volume because of the strong dollar, retaliatory tariffs and competition from foreign wine producers, who are heavily subsidized by their governments and benefiting from free trade agreements in key markets. California wine exports have grown nearly 60% by value in the past decade. The Wine Institute’s California Wine Export Program includes more than 170 wineries that export to 142 countries where 13 global representative offices conduct marketing and promotional programs in 25 countries across the globe.
