Hong Kong – a top destination for U.S. wines

Hong Kong – a top destination for U.S. wines

U.S. wine exports, 90 percent from California, reached a record $1.61 billion in winery revenues in 2015, according to the statistics issued by Wine Institute in July 2016. Volume shipments were 461 million liters or 51.2 million cases. Hong Kong was the third largest market for U. S. wine exports, taking in $97 million worth of U.S. wine in 2015.

Hong Kong is strengthening its position as Asia’s wine trading hub. The city is also the super-connector between Mainland China and the rest of the world, bringing wine from more than 40 countries into the growing market on its doorstep. Hong Kong’s wine re-exports to the Mainland soared last year – up 87 percent, year-on-year. More and more of these re-exports are granted instant clearance at Mainland customs, stored in Hong Kong cellars accredited by the Hong Kong Quality Assurance Agency, and marketed on the Mainland with Hong Kong’s branding expertise and enterprise. U.S. was the third largest source of wines imported into Hong Kong in terms of quantity in 2015.
