17.9.16 Impressive Sales Growth of Wines From Cádiz
Exports of wine from Andalucía are growing healthily with wine from Cádiz leading the way. The first 6 months of 2016 show a total increase on the same period last year of 21%, and wine from Cádiz – Sherry and the Vinos de la Tierra de Cádiz - represent over 70% of this. Wines from the province have increased sales to 37.2 million euros or 12.4%. This is mainly the result of favourable conditions in export markets led by the UK with 26.6% of sales (up 35%), the USA 15% of sales (up 34.8%) and the Low Countries with 12% of sales. Sales to Russia have grown dramatically to 4.7 million euros which represents a growth of 950%! Japan remains a small market (in 11th place) but grew at 133% and great efforts are being made to promote the wines there.
