China Guangzhou, housewives buy white wine

David BECK AI & Blockchain / Lecturer & Research

One big trend that started at the end of 2018 was Chinese housewives buying white wine.

Until now, red wine has been dominant, but the influx of so many female wine drinkers is starting to change that dynamic. Ladies prefer fruitier, sweeter drinks. White wines from New Zealand, such as Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, might have a great opportunity to gain market share in China over the next few years.
