Exports of Cotes du Rhone wines fell 15% in volume and 14% in value in the first half of 2009, compared to the same period of 2008, figures from trade association Inter-Rhone show.

Global exports for the six months to the end of June were 261,049hl and almost EUR105.38m (US$158.5m).

"The rate of decline eased in the second quarter on the first but that's not to say recovery is firmly underway," an Inter-Rhône spokesperson told just-drinks today (26 October).

He said preliminary data for July and August was more positive and may indicate some importers are starting to replenish stocks.

However, there was little sign of improvement in exports to the UK, the biggest market for Rhône Valley wines. Sales fell 28% in volume and 22% in value to EUR21.2m for the half-year.
