To understand US grape consumption, it’s important to know the US market received product from 10 regions during the 12 months studied. However, 97% of the volume came from only four regions.
Those four complementary regions include:
1. Central California is the main region, producing for six months, with a market share of more than 45%.
2. Chile ranks second, producing for six months, with a market share of 23%.
3. Peru ranks third, marketing during the transition between the California and Chile production seasons, with a market share of 18%. Although it has a long production season, export volume is concentrated between November and April.
4. The fourth major contributor is Mexico, exporting to the United States during the transition between
Chile and California. Top volume moves from May to July, with a market share of 11%.
The other six regions, as an aggregate, contribute only 2.3% of the annual US grape market.
