When people think of wine, probably countries such as France, Italy, and the U.S. come to mind, but rarely China. Surprisingly, China is now the fifth largest consumer of wine in the world, with total consumption being about one-half of the total consumed in the U.S. This is a recent phenomenon that accelerated in the late 1990’s and has continued largely uninterrupted to present. The Chinese wine market grew 58% in the period 1996- 2001; 99% from 2001- 2006 and 192% from 2006-2011 before peaking in 2012 and slowing for several years. Rapid growth resumed in 2014 seeing 50% year-on-year growth from 2014 to 2015 (however, much of this growth was bulk import of wines, not domestic production). 90% of the wine produced in China is consumed domestically.
