Cream, the third best-selling wine from Marco, closed the first four months of the year with an increase of 10.6% and just over 1.6 million liters. To a large extent, this growth is due to the increase in inventories in the United Kingdom, its main market. However, in the last year, cream sales have decreased by 28.7%, totaling 5.5 million liters.

In the first case, sales from January to April exceed 0.4 million after an increase of 52%, while in the second, sales amount to 0.3 million with a rebound of 82.7%, the greatest among all wines. In the last year, pale cream reached close to 1.9 million liters after a drop of 11.2%, unlike the 9.6% increase experienced by Pedro Ximénez, which far exceeds 1.2 million liters. liters.

Manzanilla occupies the sixth position in exports in the first quarter, led by medium and cream, followed by fino, pale cream and Pedro Ximénez.
