The status of the wine world according to the OIV | press conference

OIV, the International Office of Vine and Wine, keeps track of world wine production, vineyards surface area, wine consumption and many other interesting things in the global world of wine.

In their press conference on April 11, 2017 they presented the situation for global wine in 2016. We will come back to all the details that were presented about world wine production etc here on BKWine Magazine later, but first I thought I’d share with you the whole press conference, if you are keen on details.

Here’s the presentation of the OIV (Organisation Internationale de la Vigne et du Vin) director general Jean-Marie Aurand. The half-hour presentation is in French. M Aurand covers world vineyard acreage, world wine production, world wine consumption, wine trade and wine exports, as well as the latest news of the harvest in the southern hemisphere for 2017.

Following the presentation there was a question and answer session that you can see here. Some subjects covered: China, wine exports from Spain to France, world alcohol consumption and more.

The OIV press conference questions and answers:

I will come back with more specific details on some of the subjects covered here later.

If you are curious about a “historic” perspective you can watch last year’s press conference from April 2016:

If you have come this far then you are probably interested in the deep details of what wine organisations have to say about wine. I can then suggest that you also take a look at what the CIVB, The Bordeaux Wine Bureaux, had to say at their recent press conference: The latest on the Bordeaux business, CIVB press conference.

I can perhaps add that one of the benefits of attending the OIV press conferences is that they always have some rather unusual wines to taste at the cocktail that follows. Like for instance these two excellent white wines from Moravia in the Czech Republic.
