New Market Study Published: Wine in the Czech Republic
Wine consumption continued to increase in the Czech Republic to reach 196 million litres in 2011. The wine harvest, however, was one of the worst in history for Czech wineries and grape growers. The harvest of 2010 was down one third compared to the harvest of 2009, which created a gap in the supply of Czech wines for the season. This shortfall had to be offset by using the surplus of previous years and foreign products.
