Demand for organic wine will continue to increase in France, SudVinBio announced after looking at developments in recent years and on future trends. The study has been made as a prelude to the organic wine fair Millésime Bio, which takes place in Montpellier in late January.
Organic wine sales have grown annually by 16.8% by volume over the period 2012-2017. It will, according to the study, continue to grow by 14% per year, some more in value, over the period 2017 to 2022. In 2012, organic wine had 1.69% of the market in France. In 2017 the figure had increased to 3.72% and the 2022 figure is estimated to be 7.68%.
Maybe there will even be a problem with the supply to satisfy the ever-increasing demand. Organic wine growing has always faced challenges and maybe even more now after the EU countries’ decision to reduce the use of copper spraying from 6 to 4 kilograms per year and hectare.
