The Ministry of Industry and Trade expects that sales of Russian wine in 2022 will exceed sales of imported ones

Sales of Russian wine in retail in 2022 may exceed sales of imported products, Viktor Evtukhov, Secretary of State, Deputy Head of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, said. Now the sales ratio is close to 50/50. In addition, according to the Deputy Minister, the import of wine materials for the production of wine "essentially stopped."

“Experts say that in 2022 there will be 40-45 million liters of still and sparkling wine more than last year. This will already allow changing the balance of imports and domestic production in favor of Russian winemakers,” said Mr. Evtukhov "Interfax".

According to the Deputy Minister, the Russian market needs at least another 150 million liters of its own wine in order to bring the share of imports to 20-25%. The Deputy Minister believes that, first of all, it is necessary to replace the "products of unfriendly countries." Viktor Evtukhov said that retailers are ready to increase sales of Russian wine.

The head of the Russian Export Center, Veronika Nikishina, during the Russian Wine Forum said that Russia ranks 12th in the world in terms of wine production and 48th in terms of exports.

The manager of the Pyaterochka and Perekrestok networks, X5 Group, became the leader in the import of alcohol in Russia in 2022, Kommersant learned earlier. It increased purchases from abroad by 30% year-on-year.
