The International Organization of Vine and Wine (OIV) has estimated Italy’s wine production from the 2015 harvest at 49.5 million hectoliters, ahead of France’s 47.5 million. Thus, Italy has returned to the number one position in world wine production after a relatively poor harvest in much of Italy in 2014 dropped it to second place for a year.
(Volume in thousands of hectoliters; e.g., global production is around 275 million hl)

Note: 2015 data are estimated and are likely to change in future reports.
