This week, wine lovers will celebrate Beaujolais Nouveau Day (21 November) – so it is an appropriate time to look at the latest data on the major wine exporters and importers in the European Union (EU). In 2018, the sold production of wine (including sparkling wine, port and grape must) in the EU was around 15 billion litres. The largest wine producers were Italy, Spain and France, followed by Portugal, Germany and Hungary.
The purpose of this meeting is to present to the EU Civil Society Organisations the state of play of the negotiations with Australia and New Zealand and the Draft Final Reports of the Sustainability Impact Assessments, and to exchange views on these topics.
A summary of the hearing is now available.
