The market for organic wines will continue to grow in France

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.
