The government’s announcements to raise the excise tax on alcohol by 10% as of January 1, 2020 caused great concern in the industry. According to governmental calculations, the next year’s state budget is to gain PLN 552.9 million. Let us remind that the government announced the excise tax raise for the first time in April 2019 in its Multiannual Financial Plan. The entry came back in the next year’s draft budget. The difference is that the first document mentions a 3% rise and the second a 10% rise. The industry’s representatives say it’s too late to prepare for the excise tax raise.

Poles still know little about the difference between sparkling wine and champagne – according to the next round of CBM Indicator survey. Almost every sparkling wine, if made naturally, is in fact champagne, but only a few sparkling wines can be named as such. This obvious difference for experts is still unclear to an average Pole. The immense popularity of sparkling wines has made the word “champagne” the most widely used term for any fizzy wine. Sparkling wines and champagnes have an established position on our market. This is confirmed by the results of the unaided recall. According to the latest results of CBM Indicator survey, just like in the past years, 4 brands of sparkling wines prevail in the consciousness of Poles: Cic&Cin, Dorato, Carlo Rossi and Sowietskoje Igristoje.

Sales of sparkling wines and champagnes in small-format stores are highly concentrated. The leader in sales is unchangably Ambra (owner of Dorato, Piccolo, Cin&Cin and MichelAngelo brands), which in 2018, acquired almost 1/3 of the shares. Other important players in terms of value generated at that time were Henkell & Co. (now Henkell Freixenet) – among other Sowietskoje Igristoje, Raffaello and Mionetto Prosecco, and also Bartex (among other Bajkał Igristoje, Mogen David and Jantarskoje Igristoje) – both accounted for, respectively, approximately 11% and 10% of the category’s turnover. Bacardi Martini, the shares of which in the sales value amounted to over 7%, has gained in importance.

It was here that visitors could taste, for the first time, Ice Wine from Romania, the unusual Amarone, unknown (on the Polish market) Serbian wines or choose from among French wines from the Loire Valley. This year’s edition of the international fair Wine Expo Poland welcomed over 80 exhibitors from 14 countries of Europe and South Africa, who presented their flagship wines and novelties not available in the general sales. Producers, importers and distributors established and developed business relations. Several hundred visitors participated in seminars, wine tastings, learning about their history and new flavours as well as gaining new knowledge.

Table wines in the entire year 2018 accounted for 50% of the turnover of all wines in small format stores. Dessert wine had a positive impact on the development of the wine category in 2018, which now competes with table wine and takes away its market share. Table wine sales in small format stores are highly fragmented. The majority of shares are held by 3 key producers since 2014. The sales leader is CEDC, the owner of the Carlo Rossi brand, which in 2018 associated nearly 18% of shares in the value of table wine sales. In December 2018, 4 out of 5 small format stores selling table wines had wines of this company in their offer. Slightly lower distribution was achieved by Ambra and Bartex. In the last 12 months, the latter two producers reached, respectively, 10% and 7% of the value shares in the table wine market.
