No. 9 Argentina
Import value: US$11.38 million
Import volume: 2.37 million litres
Compared with its South American neighbour Chile, Argentina has a lot to catch up at least in terms of wine performance in China.
In the first six months of the year, its bottled wine exports to China slumped by 6.16% to US$11.38 million, while its volume dropped by 8.41% to 2.37 million litres over the same period last year.
But compared with Chile, Argentina’s per bottle price more than doubled that of its neighbor at US$4.81 per litre. Chile’s per bottle price is US$2.08 per litre.
