OIV: 2020 wine production first estimations – October 2020 October 28,
Speaking from the OIV’s headquarters in Paris, by web conference, Director General Pau Roca presented on 27 October, information on wine production, consumption and international trade in 2020.
The impact of COVID-19 in the sector was also highlighted.
Further, some estimates with regard to the state of industry in 2020:
After the exceptionally high production of 2018, for the second consecutive year, the world wine production volume is expected to be below average.
- Lower than average production volume in the EU, where measures to reduce the harvest volume had a significant impact in Italy, France and Spain notwithstanding the overall favourable climatic conditions.
- First harvest forecasts in the US indicate volumes in line with 2019, but uncertainty caused by wildfires might lead to further revisions.
- Drop of South America’s wine production, especially in Argentina and Chile due to unfavourable weather conditions.
- South Africa finally back to “normality” after several years of drought.
- Australia records a low harvest due to bushfires while New Zealand shows a record harvest volume in 2020.
Based on information collected on 30 countries, which represent 84% of the world production in 2019, 2020 world wine production (excluding juices and musts) is estimated between 253.9 and 262.2 mhl, with a mid‑range estimate at 258 mhl.
