Chile overtakes Spain

chile wine

Figures to mid-June 2007 just released by A C Nielsen show that retail sales of Chilean wine in the United Kingdom have overtaken those of Spanish wine, moving Chile up into 6th place.

Michael Cox, Wines of Chile’s UK Director, commented: ‘Chile is now making steady and sustained progress across the board in both volume and value. This is testimony to the hard work being done by the wineries, and the growing awareness of Chile’s naturally diverse styles of quality wines.’

Current positions are:

1st : Australia
2nd : France
3rd : USA
4th : Italy
5th : South Africa

Chile now has 6.9% of UK off-trade sales, and is moving up to challenge South Africa for 5th place.
