Slightly less wine in 2022

The global production of wine will turn out to be a bit smaller than in previous years.

The international Organisation for Viniculture and Winemaking (OVI) estimates production this year at 260 million hectolitres. This is a fraction less than the 262 million hectolitres of 2021. The OIV has based its estimate on information from 29 countries that together represent 91% of the global production.

In Spain and Greece, the drought did have an impact, though. In Spain wine production is 12% smaller and in Greece even 29%. (Source:
