French wine is produced in several regions throughout France, in quantities between 50 and 60 million hectolitres per year, or 7–8 billion bottles.
France has the world's second-largest total vineyard area, behind Spain, and competes with Italy for the position of being the world's largest wine producer.
 French wines account for almost 20% of world exports.
 French wine traces its history to the 6th century BC, with many of France's regions dating their wine-making history to Roman times.
The wines produced today range from expensive high-end wines sold internationally, to more modest wines usually only seen within France.
