Default Spain is the biggest wine exporter.

This surprised me, from the Majorca Daily Bulletin

Quote:
Spain becomes the world’s biggest wine exporter.

Spain has become the world’s biggest wine exporter, with bottles of ‘cheap plonk’ flying off the shelves.
Last year, a massive 22 million hectolitres of Spanish vino was exported, outstripping both France and Italy.
However, sales revenues were down 2.2% because of bulk sales with small margins, despite a 22% rise in the volume shipped out.
Surprisingly, France is now the biggest buyer of Spanish wines, importing and bottling – often as French wine – 5.8m hectolitres in 2014, 40% up on the previous year.

For the non mathematical amongst us a Hectolitre is European for:

a "Heck of a lot"


(100 litres Hic Hic!!)

This is mainly because they have been over producing and have an enormous surplus of cheap wine that is being sold off

Default Wine from the Area (I think)

I have been avidly reading all the trip reorts, which are all very interesting - making me jealous really.

However, one recurring theme seems to be a wine called Mortitx, which seems to be favoured by many. What is it, grape variety, price , etc please? Thanks.
