China Hong Kong, wine market demand is tepid

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.*
