Wine consumption in Spain registered a slight fall in the first six months of this year, according to recent figures.

Trade body Federaçion Espanola del Vino (FEV) said yesterday (22 August) that the country's total wine consumption in the period slid by 3.5% year-on-year to 531m litres. The fall was due primarily to a 7.3% dip in wine consumption in the catering and hotel sector, FEV claimed.

Despite the overall fall, Spanish households increased the amount of wine they consumed in the period, by 12.5% in value to EUR421m (US$542.7m) and by 2% in volume to 230m litres. Household consumption of table wines followed the general trend, however, falling by 0.7%.

Household consumption of wines with Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) was up by 7.7% on the corresponding period a year earlier, while sparkling wine leapt 24.8% the federation added.
