June 10, 2009 at 8:32 pm (For the Love of Wine)

Argentine wine exports are back on track following a shaky start to the year, according to new figures.

Export volumes were up 3% in the first four months of 2009, despite a fall-off in January and February. The value of the exported wine was up 15%.  The data was supplied by Market Research & Technology of Buenos Aires, which said Argentina’s two main export markets, the USA and Canada, had increased volumes by 36% and 52% respectively over the period.

Exports to the UK rose by 15%, behind other European markets including Germany, Switzerland and Finland.  Malbec was the most exported varietal, and now accounts for 28% of volumes.
