The domestic wine production has reported annual fluctuations, as it is influenced among others by unpredictable factors such as weather. Production reached its peak during the period 2004-2005, while in the following years it followed a downward trend.
Over the period 2015-2020 production dropped by 19%.
Over time, white wine has been the main wine category, accounting for 65% - 70% of domestic production in recent years. Red and rose wine accounted for 30% - 35% of total production.
Domestic wines cover the domestic demand to a great degree, a fact which makes the degree of import penetration low (14% in 2018-2019), following an upward trend.
