Peruvian grape production continues to climb

Despite exporting virtually no grapes as recently as 13 years ago, Peruvian grape exports were worth $365 million last year. That rapid growth has been driven by increasing production by the nation's growers.

Although, according to a report by the United States Department of Agriculture's Foreign Agricultural Service, the cost of planting new vineyards remains high, good prices and good returns on investment keep growers planting more acreage. That's contributed to strong growth in production, with an estimated 305,000 MT for the current year. Of that production, it's estimated 150,000 MT will be exported.

The primary markets for Peruvian grapes are the Netherlands and the US. Last year, 27,516 MT were shipped to the Netherlands and 25,420 MT were shipped to the US. The value of grape exports last year was estimated at $365 million.
