It is summer time and people drink tons of rosé wines. In 2014 the world produced a total of 24.3 million hectolitres of rosé (sparkling rosé not included). This was a rise by 16% from 2002. But those of you who do not particularly like rosé, don’t despair. This is still only 9.6% of the total world wine production.
France is by far the biggest rosé producing country. Italy, a country that produces as much wine as France, is far behind. Rosé has not really caught on in Italy. One wonders why? France makes 7.6 million hectolitres of rosé of the year, which is about 16% of the total wine production in the country. (Source: OIV)
