  • 週四, 13 四月 2017 21:54
China’s area under vine is now the second largest in the world after Spain, with the country seeing the biggest growth in wine consumption of any country in 2016, according to the OIV’s latest annual report on the state of the global wine industry.

Global wine production fell 3% in 2016, but China bucked the trend growing its vineyard surface area and consumption

The director general of the OIV, Jean-Marie Aurand, presented its statistics on global wine production and international trade in 2016 at the organisation’s headquarters in Paris on 11 April.

Overall, the size of the global area under vine remained at 7.5 million hectares in 2016, with China the only country to have significantly increased its vineyard production area this year, with the majority of country seeing vineyard area stabilise or decrease.

China’s vineyard surface area increased by 17 hectares to 847,000 hectares, following a steady trend since 2010, placing it as the country’ with the world’s second largest vineyard area.

Spain remains home to the largest area under vine at 975,000 hectares, with vineyard area steady, with France following China in third position with 785,000 hectares of vineyards.

Unlike China, both Spain and France have seen their area under vine decrease steadily since 2010, along with Turkey.

While still placed fifth with 480,000 hectares under vine, Turkey saw the biggest decrease in plantings, which dropped by 17 hectares. Portugal also saw a significant drop in vineyard surface area, which decreased by 9 hectares.

In Europe, only Italy saw its vineyard area increase, growing by 8.2 hectares to 690,000 hectares.

PRODUCTION DOWN

Overall wine production declined by 3% compared with 2015, falling to 267 million hectolitres in 2016 compared with 2015.

Italy (50.9 mhl) confirmed its position as the world’s leading producer, followed by France (43.5 mhl) and Spain (39.3 mhl).

In South America and South Africa unfavourable climate conditions throughout the 2016 vintages affected production volumes. Production volume dropped sharply in Argentina by 29% to 9.4 million hectolitres, in Chile by 21% to 10.1 mhl, in Brazil by a hefty 55% to 1.6 mhl and by 6% in South Africa to 10.5 mhl.

Countries that saw the biggest rise in production volumes included New Zealand (34%), the US (10%), and Switzerland (18%).

CONSUMPTION STABLE

Global wine consumption remained stable compared with 2015, coming in at 242m hectolitres in 2016.

The US was confirmed as the world’s biggest consumer, consuming 31.8 mhl of wine in 2016 – a title it has held since 2011 – followed by France (27.0 mhl), Italy (22.5 mhl), Germany (20.2 mhl) and China (17.3 mhl).

The UK came in in fifth position with 12.9mhl, after China which consumed 17.3mhl. This represented the biggest increase in wine consumption of any country, at +6.9%, signalling this region’s growing importance within the global wine trade.

Significant decreases in consumption were reported in Hungary, Argentina and Romania, while consumption in France and Spain remained stable.

Finally, while global volume sales saw a slight reduction of 1.2% to 104mhl, their value increased by 2% to €29 billion, correlating with wider trends of premiumisation throughout the industry.

    一位中國人在瑞士惹出假酒風波 【酒總訊】中國一名網路作家「唐家三少」日前在瑞士花9999瑞士法郎(約8.07萬港元),品嚐了一杯據稱是100年前出產的麥卡倫威士忌(Macallan Whisky)引起轟動。 這瓶百年麥卡倫威士忌(Macallan Whisky) 是1878年裝瓶。而收藏這瓶威士忌的酒家是瑞士維爾德豪斯酒店的魔鬼之地(Devil's Place),該酒吧因收藏了2500多瓶威士忌而獲得吉尼斯世界紀錄。 但是,據Scotchwhisky.com報導,一些威士忌專家和愛好者指出,這瓶酒很有可能在幾年前是 “在意大利生產的臭名昭著的威士忌假酒”, “裡面的烈酒可能不超過10年左右”。報導也指出,有多名威士忌專家或收藏家分別從酒標、酒塞等不同的角度分析後,認為那瓶天價的「百年威士忌」很可能是假酒。  …

    生活 態度  -  一點兩點三點水: 譚子健 一點兩點三點水: 譚子健 早前參加過香港酒業總商會的周年誌慶,當晚有很多業界、專家在場,也有精彩的葡萄酒拍賣。 在璀璨的晚宴過後,細想酒類的業界,到底有甚麼需要呢?我個人在想,現時香港的葡萄酒業界面對了從2008年開始因免稅而過度擴張的市場,現在開始進入了調整期。在銷售額來說,要增長肯定有壓力。而且內地的銷售,也在調整之中。我個人覺得業界是需要不同程度的去開拓市場,就以香港來說,我覺得飲酒的人實在太少了,他們的習慣都只是假日作消閒而已。反觀外國飲酒已成為他們的生活態度,即是說,每天都在享受飲酒。當然我也不鼓勵飲太多,最主要的是,要教導消費者去令飲酒成為一種生活態度。且看日本人飲酒的知識,很深很廣。可能就是因為酒類實在太普及、太方便了,就像High Ball在麵店、快餐店,隨處都可以點來享用,反觀香港這種習慣趨勢相差得很遠。 要將飲酒的習慣普及化,我個人絕不介意例如加上其他果汁飲品作為雞尾酒,令大家都有這種習慣去享受飲酒的樂趣,這樣就可以讓他們一步一步的進入酒的世界去享受。不要讓他們覺得享受酒類是一種好深的學問,見到高深理論便會望而卻步。香港人上班時壓力這麼大,放工時應該飲酒輕鬆一下,不要給高深理論嚇怕了他們。
