Wine Institute Reports on California Wine Exports

By April 23, 2018Top News

U.S. wine exports, 97% from California, reached $1.53 billion in winery revenues and 380 million liters (42.2 million cases) in 2017. Golden State exports were down 5.5% in value and 7.9% in volume, due in part to the strong dollar, heavily-subsidized foreign wine producers and competitors forging free trade agreements in key markets. The top 10 export markets for California wines are: the European Union’s 28-member countries, accounting for $553 million; Canada, $444 million; Hong Kong, $119 million; Japan, $94 million; China, $79 million; South Korea, $25 million; Mexico, $23 million; Singapore, $17 million; Philippines, $14 million; and the Dominican Republic, $13 million.
