The world’s total wine production in 2010 is estimated to around 260 million hectolitre (Mhl). It is a decrease with around 4% from 2009. This is a small harvest with in particular the EU having very low wine production.
The EU wine production in 2010 was exceptionally small, only 153 Mhl. It is one of the smallest harvests in the last 15 years (as were 2007 and 2008). Compared to 2009 it is a decrease with 8% from 163 Mhl. The only country in the EU that increased its wine production was Portugal with a small growth. Outside of the EU the 2010 wine production was also smaller than 2009, but not so radically: 70.6 Mhl compared to 71.8 Mhl.
