The US exported $1.29 billion in wine in 2020. The volume was 377 million litres, reports the Wine Institute. This corresponds to a decrease in value of 6.4 percent and in volume by 1.1 percent compared to the previous year. The reasons are known. In addition to the pandemic and retaliatory tariffs and trade disputes, the Wine Institute also names the strong dollar as the cause.
Ninety six percent of the exported wines come from California alone.
