Portuguese wine exports grow 2.1% and exceed 185 million euros


South Korea, Mexico and the United States were the countries that imported the most.

   Portuguese wine exports increased 2.1% in the first quarter of this year, to more than 185 million euros compared to the same period last year, revealed this Tuesday by the Interprofessional Association for the Promotion of Wines of Portugal (ViniPortugal).

   In the first three months of this year the increase reported was 4.4% in volume comparing year-by-year, says ViniPortugal in a statement recalling that these are the most recent data on the performance of the wine sector.

   By group of export destination markets, the European Union performed the opposite behavior in relation to the so-called third countries (which includes, in particular, countries such as the United States, Canada, Brazil and China), with a drop of 14, 4% in value.
