France: 3 billion euros worth of sparkling wines exported in 2015

Between 2014 and 2015, French sparkling wines turned over 3 billion euros in export sales, an increase of 12%, according to statistics released by the French Wine & Spirits Exporters’ Federation (FEVS). Growth is particularly remarkable in China, where turnover surged by 60% to 23 million euros. The Chinese market, which for a long time had failed to show any interest in sparkling wines, is apparently warming to them. Other noteworthy performances include the United States, up 36% to 563 million euros. The US market is now worth more than the UK market which generated 526 million euros in sales of sparkling wines, up 8%. Two countries showed declining sales: Russia, a major consumer of fizz, which dropped 33% to 16 million euros, and Germany which fell by 3% to 243 million euros. In the case of Russia, a challenging economy and strained diplomatic relations are probably part of the explanation for the shortfall.
