Germany exported about 18 million euros worth of wines to China last year, a drop of 9% over 2019.

The country’s diverse style of Rieslings have yet to whet up appetite for China’s mass wine consumers, but as German wine associations ramp up promotions on German Rieslings and Pinot, we expect to see more traction for German wines.

Its ranking climbed up from 2019’s 10 spot to last year’s No.8.

  1. Dear Natalie, thanks for your article … if possible could you mention the source of your data (value of China import for each country and if the number related only to below 2 litre bottled wine or wine category as whole thus including bulk …..

      1. Hi Natalie, thanks for fast reply … by chance do you have access to data for bottled wine (without bulk and sparkling) … before i remember CAWS publishes … many thanks indeed

  2. Thanks Natalie, this is fascinating reading, and it will be very interesting as to how the market in China for imported wines changes in the next 2 to 3 years.
