Hamper fans can toast victory for French wine
Published on 12/01/2011

Hamper fans may want to make sure there is a French tipple in their next delivery, as a study has named the country the world's number one wine maker.

International Wine and Spirit Research (IWSR) calculated that it produced 419 million cases in 2010, more than rivals Italy and Spain, which came second and third respectively.

This means France has reclaimed the title after losing out to Italy the last time the research was conducted in 2009.

The country is expected to hold on to the top spot until 2014, even though wine production is expected to decrease by at least five per cent over the next three years.

IWSR is a family-owned data provider that focuses solely on the global market for alcoholic beverages, covering 220 countries and territories with its studies.

Commentators have mentioned that large demand in China was responsible for an increase in sales.
