Citing data from the Italian National Statistic Institute, the Italian Wine Union (UIV) said yesterday (2 October) that the value of Italian wine exports was up 12% compared to the same period last year, hitting EUR1.6bn (US$2.27bn) in the first six months of 2007.

In volume terms, exports increased by 15% year-on-year to 925,000 tonnes, the union said.

Wine exports for the full-year are expected to exceed the record of EUR3.1bn registered last year, the union noted.
