Bulgaria - Wine Market Annual Report 2020


Report Highlights: Post forecasts Bulgaria’s 2019 grape crop will remain unchanged at 195,000 metric tons (MT), most of which will produce about 120 million liters of wine. The Bulgarian wine sector continues to evolve, driven by investments, increasing consumer incomes, and Bulgaria's developing food-service industry. Wine sales (by value) increased by five percent in 2018 and consumer trends reveal a growing preference for higher-quality wines. Although January-October 2019 official data indicate wine imports decreased by two percent by volume, total 2019 imports are expected to be stable or slightly higher following an uptick in imports during the last quarter of the year. Poland, Sweden, and the United Kingdom were the top export markets for Bulgarian wine (by value) in 2018 and in 2019 (October).
