wineSPAIN topped the list of wine exporting nations with a record harvest last year.

According to the Spanish Wine Market Observatory (OEMV), Spanish vineyards produced over 52 million hectolitres (5.2 billion litres) of vino last year, up 53.7% from the year before.

Almost half of Spain’s exported wine was sold in bulk at the bargain price of €0.40 per litre.

Much of that wine went to France, where it was bottled and exported for a profit.
