Wine production has faced pretty heavy weather this year. And it hurt. Literally. Floods, drought, frost and hail, you name it, it’s hit the vineyards in Europe and Latin America. This has cut down global production 5 percent from the previous year. However, the quality of the vintage has not been affected, analysts say.
- This year across Europe and South America floods, droughts, frost, and hail in particular have cut into world wine production in particular overall.
- Recently Italy remained the worlds top producer in particular for the second straight year in a row with a volume of forty eight point eight million hectoliters.
- When it comes to the aspect of global production overall global production has fell five percent from 2015 levels to two hundred and fifty nine million hectoliters.
