The market for organic wine is booming. But while demand keeps rising, the supply side seems to be lagging. France is still going strong: 12% of its vineyards are now farmed organically, an increase of one-fifth in 2018, according to the French Agence Bio.
In Italy, however, organic viticulture seems to be levelling, with only a 2% growth in 2017, according to Italian agency SINAB. Although Italy still has Europe’s biggest surface under organic viticulture (16.6%), the weak growth rate could indicate a ceiling.
