Red wine regions are currently facing challenges, including the Rhône region. In response to declining consumption, the focus has shifted to the style of wine produced. Alexandra Wrann and Iris Trenkner-Panwitz report.
The International Organisation of Vine & Wine (OIV) estimate that 2023 wine production will be 7% lower than the below-average volume of 2022, and it says, the lowest output since 1961. Does this tally with what we at Ciatti are hearing, and what should we make of it?
