Exports of Alsace wines posted modest growth in volume and value last year on 2011, according to figures obtained by just-drinks from regional trade body CIVA.

In volume terms, shipments in 2012 were up by 1.9% year-on-year, hitting 265,201 hectolitres, the organisation said yesterday (15 April). By value, they increased by 3.1% to just over EUR126.5m (US$165.5m).

The EU accounted for 74% of exports by volume and just over 65% by value. The leading destination for Alsace wines was Belgium followed by Germany, with exports to the latter slipping in both volumes and value.

Of the top ten destinations for exports, growth was largely focused on Canada, Sweden, the US, the UK, Finland and Japan.

Meanwhile, China is acquiring a taste for Alsace wines although volumes remain small. Exports totalled 2,922 hectolitres, up 35.7% on 2011.
