About the report
This compendium (book) and the database containing the underlying data, provides a comprehensive global record of bearing area of all winegrapes by variety and region (hence country) for the years 2000 and 2010
The compendium, entitled 'Which winegrape varieties are grown where? A global empirical picture’ was produced by K Anderson and N Aryal from the University of Adelaide. It provides statistics and charts on global, national and regional winegrape varieties, including:
- Winegrape area by region by country
- Global winegrape area, share of global area, and global ranks of each prime variety (alphabetic), 1990, 2000 and 2010
- A comprehensive list of all known winegrape varieties (over 1200) including their share of world production and ranking and all known synonyms
- World’s top 35 varieties in 1990, 2000 and 2010 – including the top five red varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Tempranillo, Shiraz and Grenache, and the top five white varieties: Airen, Chardonnay, Trebbiano, Grasevina (Riesling) and Rkatsiteli
- Summary charts for each of the world’s top 50 varieties
- Fastest growing and fastest contracting varieties
- National shares of top, top 3, top 5, top 10 and top 20 varieties, by winegrape area for each grapegrowing country – for 2000 and 2010
The underlying database supporting the compendium covers national and regional data by variety for 48 countries, for the years 2000 and 2010 (with less-complete data also for 1960, 1970, 1980 and 1990).
