Australia's Growing Love Affair with Champagne

Australia is the 6th largest market in the world when it comes to importing French bubbles. Australians enjoyed more than 8 million bottles of Champagne last year, the biggest increase in any single year in history, more than 1.5 million bottles (24%) up on 2014. This makes Australia the fastest growing of Champagne’s top ten markets.

The UK remains Champagne’s biggest export market, with over 34.1 million bottles. That represents a 4.52% increase, while imports into the US, the second biggest market, grew by 7.09% to over 20.5 million bottles. Germany (11.9m), Japan (11.7m) and Belgium (9.2m) make up Champagne’s top five export markets.
