Italian organic wine exports grew by 38% in 2015, compared to 5% growth in non-organic wines.

According to Nomisma’s Wine Monitor, organic wine sales were worth €205 million, of which €68 million was on the domestic market and €137 million on international markets (+38% on 2014).

Germany is the leading export destination for organic Italian wine, followed by the US and Switzerland. Around 21% of the Italian adult population (10.6 million people) has tried organic wines at least once.

One in every ten hectares in Italy is organic (Sicily accounts for 38%), and with 66,578 hectares, Italy is ranked second in Europe, after Spain.

Also, according to Nomisma, overall wine imports on the top ten global markets (accounting for 70% of the total) grew by 3.8% in the period from January to May 2016, to €7.3 billion.

Italian wine imports grew at the same rate (+4%), but were surpassed by Spanish (+9%) and French (+8%) wines.

Leading the list of the top ten wine importers are the US (€1.99 billion, +4.5%), the UK (€1.36 billion, -5.6%), Germany (€921.3 million, -6.2%), China (€905.2 million, +41.7%) and Canada (€589.6 million, -5.0%).
