The French Ministry of Agriculture has published a somewhat more optimistic forecast for wine production this year, which is expected to be 27 percent lower than last year.

This year’s wine production in France will be weak

On Thursday, the ministry said 34.4 million hectoliters of wine are expected to be produced this year, more than the 33.3 million hectoliters expected in September. The hectolitre is up to 100 liters, about 133 standard wine bottles.

However, the ministry pointed out that more wine is produced in the Champagne, Bordeaux and Charentes regions than previously estimated. (MTI/Reuters)
