Some 18.7 metric tons (MT) was shipped in November and a further 260MT set sail during the first week of December, according to data from Chile's Office of Agricultural Research and Policy (ODEPA).

The U.S. is currently the only market to which Chilean grapes have been exported so far this campaign.

Chile-based market intelligence organization Decofrut forecast in late November the Atacama region would see a 2% year-on-year decline in exports this season, while the Coquimbo region would see a 2% gain.
