Russian winemakers are trying to take part of the share of imports.

According to Kommersant, based on the data of the "Wine Guide of Russia" produced by Roskachestvo, in the structure of sparkling wine production in Russia, brutes and ex-brutes began to displace semi-sweet drinks. During 2022, the output of Brutes increased by almost 42%, their share rose from 33.3% in 2021 to 33.7%.

Winemakers have increased the production of breweries to 6.1 million dal year-on-year. The production of semi-sweet sparkling wines increased by 17.9%, to 8.5 million dal. However, their share has fallen from 55.8% in 2021 to 52.5%. The total production of sparkling wines, according to Rosalkogolregulirovaniya, increased by 25% last year, to 16.1 million dal year-on-year. Last year, the range of Russian sparkling wines expanded by about 140 units, up to 1100 positions: about 80 new products accounted for brutes and extra-brutes, and 55 positions — for semi-sweet sparkling wines.

As the marketing director of Luding Group Andrey Ushakov specified, sales of breweries in 2022 grew at the highest rate among Russian sparkling wines - by 23.7%, semi—dry — by 2.1%, semi-sweet - by 0.2%. Sales of sweet sparkling wines decreased by almost 18% year-on-year.

Experts believe that the time of semi-sweet and semi-dry wines is gradually disappearing, and the competencies of Russian winemakers are growing.

Meanwhile, vodka production decreased by 3.5% in January. From January to September 2022, vodka sales in Russia increased by 6.4% to 3.4 million decaliters. By the way, liqueur wines show the fastest increase in production volumes in Russia.
