Austria welcomes higher wine prices
Published:  01 October, 2010

Austrian wine producers have welcomed an increase in prices paid for their wines in overseas markets. Figures from Statistik Austria showed export values up 10% in the first half of 2010, against a 3.3% decrease in volumes.

The average price per litre of exported wine rose from e1.68 to e1.91 over the same period. The share of bottled wine exports rose from 86% to 90%.

Willi Klinger, general manager of the Austrian Wine Marketing Board, said: “We’ve achieved the highest average price ever, which brings us even closer to a goal we set in 2007 to reach an average export price of e2 per litre.”?Sales gains were made in the UK market in early 2010 following what the AWMB called a “difficult” 2009.
