French still wine production

The value of the French wine production appears to have decreased since 2015: from 12.3 billion euros down to approximately 10 billion euros in 2017. Regarding the volume produced, there were in total more than 40 million hectoliters of red and rosé wines estimated available at producers in the crop year 2017/2018, while white wines’ available volume was estimated at almost 27 million hl.  

Wine consumption habits in France

The higher production of red wines reflects in the consumption preferences of French consumers: 72 percent of surveyed respondents declared to prefer red wine in 2018 . Furthermore, even though the overall consumption volume of wine has been decreasing during the last decades, the French remain the biggest wine drinkers among a selection of European countries. A study from 2015 on wine consumption recorded that half of the French were casual wine consumers that year, meaning they drank wine once to twice a week or more rarely.
