ITALY: 2004 wine harvest forecast to be good
Italian wine production this year is forecast to rise, according to an Italian cooperative's association. Fedagri/Confcooperative said yesterday that it believes 2004's wine production will total 49m hectolitres, a rise of 10% year-on-year.
The association believes that the wine quality in 2004 will be excellent, but domestic consumption and exports will come under pressure due to the significant increase of wine production in European Union member states and rival countries.
Fedagri/Confcooperative has called for a national sector meeting later this year, in order to discuss problems in the wine-growing and wine-making sectors.
