Spanish wines fastest growing in UK bars and restaurants

Published:  01 December, 2014

Spanish wines are the fastest growing in the UK on-trade - listings are up 25% in the last year - at the expense of French wines, whose listings have fallen by 11%.

That's according to the latest report into the UK on-trade wine market by Peter McAtamney's Wine Business Solutions.

The next fastest-growing country is Argentina, which has seen listings shoot up 12%, meaning it has now secured 5% of all UK listings.

France has faced challenges as Champagne (down 11%) has been swapped for Prosecco (up 35%). However the Languedoc put in a strong performance and was France's fastest-growing on-trade wine, with listings up 11%.

New Zealand enjoyed its sixth consecutive year of growth - with listings up 4%. It is the only major supplier country to see sales increase over such a sustained period of time.

Meanwhile Chilean wines put in an unimpressive performance, coming second last after France, with listings down 10%, as more UK restaurants look to escape the under £20 per bottle segment of the market.
