The Indian state of Maharashtra, which accounts for nearly 95% of wine produced in the country, has reported a 33% leap in wine exports for the year 2005-06.
The state exported 200,000 litres of wine in 2005-06, compared to 150,000 litres the previous year.
Maharashtra has seen a near six-fold increase in exports over the last five years due to the rapid development of wine industry in India.

The main export markets for Indian wine are France, Italy, Germany, US, UK and Singapore. The per capita consumption of India in the country is only 5-6 ml per person per year.
