China Hong Kong, wine market demand is tepid

David BECK AI & Blockchain / Lecturer & Research

The big question is whether Hong Kong will remain the gateway to mainland China

Mainland China and Hong Kong’s wine markets are faced with headwinds as a result of China’s slowing economy and uncertainties of the ongoing US-China trade war. Across the border in Hong Kong, market demand is tepid as well. The problem of Hong Kong is then compounded with months long anti-government protests that dampened the city’s retail sector and hospitality industry.

90% of the surveyed consumers preferred red wines, seeing them as good for health; 50% said they never drink rosé.*
