World wine supply stable in 2022 as consumption faces downward pressures
Last updated 24 Jan 2023

Global wine production in 2022 is estimated to have been almost identical to the 2021 figure, at just below 26 billion litres. This is 2 per cent below the 5-year average and 3 per cent below the 10-year average, and is the fourth year in a row that has been slightly below average. This indicates that world wine production is generally stable, consistent with the long-term trend in vineyard surface area, which has reduced by just 1 per cent in the past 10 years (Figure 1), after falling by 5 per cent in the previous 10 years.

Why the on-premise matters for wine producers (and not just during the festive season)
Last updated 13 Dec 2022

According to data from the IWSR, the on-premise channel in Australia declined significantly during COVID-19 after being static for a number of years. It showed only a partial recovery in 2021, when it was estimated to account for just 11 per cent of total sales, or around 54 million litres. However, the significance of the on-premise as a sales channel for wine producers is much greater than its share of sales. In this Market Bulletin we identify three key reasons for this, based on the CGA by NielsenIQ (CGA) On-Premise User Survey (OPUS) , which provides a range of insights into the behaviour of on-premise visitors in Australia and other major alcohol markets.
