Ten years ago, New Zealand Winegrowers predicted that New Zealand wine exports would double and reach $2 billion in 2020. This forecast has come true. “This milestone reflects the appreciation that the world has for New Zealand wine, and reinforces our international reputation for distinct, premium and sustainable wines,” said Clive Jones, Chair of New Zealand Winegrowers. “We are optimistic that demand for New Zealand wine will continue to grow in the year ahead, and then it will become a question of whether our supply can meet that demand. While Sauvignon Blanc remains our flagship export, consumers are continuing to explore the diverse range of wine varieties we produce, with Pinot Noir remaining our second most exported variety, and Rosé and Pinot Gris becoming increasingly popular.”
