The latest figures from New Zealand Winegrowers show that in 2019, wine exports grew 8 percent for New Zealand, reaching a record $1.86 billion in sales. New Zealand Winegrowers Chief Executive Philip Gregan reported that Marlborough’s wind industry and wine reputation have been critical to the overall success. Mr Gregan also stated that sustainability is integral to our story and success and will continue to be important moving into the future. The United States is our largest market, followed by the United Kingdom and Australia. 231 million litres of Sauvignon Blanc were exported, whilst New Zealand’s rosé exports have more than doubled since 2017, nearly reaching 5.2 million litres. Over 100 countries receive New Zealand wine, and it is the country’s seventh biggest export good.
