Wine production in the 2023/2024 wine year will increase by 10% to 7.5 million hectoliters, especially in the Azores, Lisbon, Bairrada and Trás-os-Montes regions, the Vine and Wine Institute (IVV) said today.

“The data collected in the Harvest and Production Declarations show an increase in volume, with a total of 7.5 million hectoliters (hl), representing an increase of 10% compared to the 2022/2023 campaign,” the IVV said in a statement.

Compared to the average of the last five campaigns, the increase is 13%.

The Azores, Lisbon, Bairrada and Trás-os-Montes regions stand out, with increases of more than 20%.

In turn, the Verdes and Beira Interior regions saw production fall by 8%.

According to the same press release, 91% of the country’s production was eligible for Designation of Origin (DO) and Geographical Indication (GI) this year.

“In line with recent years, red wines predominate, accounting for 59.6% of the total produced. The volume of white wines, slightly above 2.5 million hectoliters, has a weight of 33.8% and rosé wines 6.7%,” he said.

The increase in production was mainly due to “reduced pest and disease activity” and new vine plantings.

The IVV is part of the state’s indirect administration, with administrative autonomy.

This institute collects taxes, coordinates the application of measures to manage the wine-growing heritage and develops actions to strengthen the sector’s competitiveness and internationalization.
