Area of the French wine cepages per year.


Data is extracted from the Observatoire de la viticulture française maintained by FranceAgriMer.

The data is provided as CSV.

The columns are :

  • type_cepage: String, Cepage type
  • surface_ha: Number, Surface (in hectares)
  • wine_surface_proportion: Number, Cepage proportion for wine
  • year: Integer, Year of the data

A quick inspection will show you that sometimes, there are some accuracy issue or missing data.

Sometimes, for some cepages, you will have non existing value a year and a year later, you will have 400 ha area like for SAUVIGNON GRIS G. We doubt that it can vary this much in one year.
