For­eign-made wine mak­ing come­back in China

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The year 2015 was a good one for the con­sump­tion of for­eign-made wine in China.

In vol­ume terms, sales of im­ported bot­tled wines in 2015 re­bounded to a three-year high of 395 mil­lion liters, up 37 per­cent year-on-year.

In value terms, 2015 sales reached $ 1.87 bil­lion, up 37 per­cent year- on- year, ac­cord­ing to data from China Cus­toms.

Lead­ing the pack of for­eign wines in China are the French va­ri­eties, fol­lowed by those from Aus­tralia, Chile, South Africa and Ar­gentina, which are fast grab­bing mar­ket shares from pop­u­lar brands.

Mar­ket re­searchers said Chi­nese con­sumers are also buy­ing more of rel­a­tively ex­pen­sive wines from New Zealand.
