Bulgaria’s best customers for wine exports are Poland and Australia

Bulgaria’s best customer for exports of its wine is – among EU countries – Poland, while among non-EU countries, the best customer is Australia.

This emerges from figures for 2011 to 2015, released by Bulgaria’s National Statistical Institute (NSI).

Among EU member states, Poland bought more than 70 million litres of wine from Bulgaria. Far behind, but in second place, was Romania, at about 25 million litres, followed by the Czech Republic, at about 15 million litres.

Among non-EU countries, Australia imported about 65 million litres of wine from Bulgaria. The second and third-best customers among non-EU countries, Azerbaijan and Albania, were way behind that, at about two million litres each.

In turn, Bulgaria imported 14 million litres of wine from Italy, close to four million from France and about three million from Spain. From non-EU countries, it imported about 1.5 million litres from Chile, just more than 800 000 litres from New Zealand and just less than 800 000 litres from its neighbour the Republic of Macedonia.
