No summer without rosé wines? Well. Anyway, people will drink a lot of rosé wine this summer, worldwide. World rosé consumption increased by 32% between 2002 and 2018. France drinks the most.
One-third of all rosé wines made in the world is drunk in France (don’t forget there’s a lot of tourists in France). France also is the biggest producer of rosé wines. The country accounts for 28% of world production.
Spain also makes a lot of rosé. But the French are better at charging money for their rosé wines than the Spaniards. France accounts for 16% of the world’s exports of rosé wine in volume, but 32% counted in value.
For Spain, it is the other way around. It accounts for 39% of the volume but only 15% of the value. Spain, and also South Africa, sell lots of simple rosé wine in bulk at low export prices, sometimes as little as 30 euros per hectolitre (30 cents per litre).
The United States is the country that pays the most for its rosé, an average of 3.80 euros per imported bottle. The UK pays 1.70 and Sweden 2 euros.
