The Rest of the World 60 index tracks the price performance of six leading wine labels from California (three), Australia (one), Spain (one) and Portugal (one). The index components are the most traded wines from these respective regions.
Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon, up 29.6%, and Dominus, up 25.2%, have been its best-performing labels in the past year.
The Rest of the World market
The category referred to as ‘Rest of the World’ (RoW) or ‘others’ follows trading activity for wines from all regions outside the six main ones that have traditionally dominated the secondary market: Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, the Rhône, Italy and the USA.
Unlike the Rest of the World 60 index, which is dominated by US wines, the Rest of the World category does not include wines from the States, which have carved their own niche in the market.
Despite a relatively low trade share by value – 4.2% in 2021 – the number of regions included in the category is constantly growing.
In 2021, RoW included 60 different regions. Some of these – such as Armenia and Crimea – traded on the secondary market for the first time. The chart below shows the regions that have taken the largest share of RoW trade by value in 2021.
