Investopedia defines net exports as the value of a country’s total exports minus the value of its total imports. Thus, the statistics below present the surplus between the value of each country’s grapes exports and its import purchases for that same commodity.

  1. Chile: US$1.4 billion (net export surplus down -7.5% since 2011)
  2. Peru: $686.5 million (up 140.6%)
  3. Italy: $661.1 million (down -11.9%)
  4. South Africa: $473.1 million (up 12%)
