Excess production

A worldwide problem in wine production with a surplus of production over consumption. In the 1970s, for the term was wine lake embossed. The reasons are higher yield through improved farming practices, more effective pest control, widespread use of fertilizers and cultivation of high-yielding grape varieties. In addition, a decline in wine consumption began in important wine-growing countries such as Argentina, France, Italy, Spain and the USSR, which are also important markets. The result of the surplus was a price decline in the lower market segment. At the end of the 1980s, a peak of almost 20% was reached. Within the EU, in the 1980s, countermeasures such as grubbing and compulsory distillation decided. Nevertheless, there is still a difference between 5 and 10%.
