CHILE: Chilean wine exports soar in year so far
Chilean wine exports have leapt in the first eight months of this year, according to recent figures.
The Chilean Agriculture Ministry's Office of Agrarian Studies and Policies (Odepa) said yesterday (25 September) that wine exports jumped by 34% for the period from January to August, reaching US$644.7m in terms of value.
According to Odepa, some 208.3m litres of designation of origin wines was exported, a rise of 27% compared to 163.7m litres from the previous year. Varieties included Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Carmenere, with main destinations for exports being the UK and US, accounting for 21% and 14% of wines respectively. Other major destinations included Brazil, Germany, the Netherlands and Canada, the study said.
Exports of designation of origin wines from the country should break the $1bn barrier for the full-year, Odepa forecast.
