Wine Production by Region

Especially coming after 2014’s generally subpar, rain-soaked harvest, 2015 was a banner year for several Italian regions. Puglia’s production increased by 2.5 million hectoliters over 2014, moving it into second place among the regions ahead of both Emilia Romagna and Sicilia for the first time since 2010. Veneto, the perennial top producer, also had a big year, with a volume approaching 10 million hectoliters. Though smaller in absolute numbers, some other regions had impressive increases in volume over 2014, led by Puglia, which was up 32%. Only Molise, Basilicata, and Lombardia produced less in 2015 than 2014.
