Ever since the China-US trade war, American wine exports to China never recovered due to close to 100% punitive tariffs.

However, it appears the impacts have been gradually absorbed in the market and American wines are slowing catching up. That being said, it will be hard for American wines to return to pre-trade war level, mainly hampered by the tariffs and the two countries’ strained relationship.  

From January to June this year, China imported 3.69 million liters of wines, the equivalent of US$19.94 million, a jump of 83.14% in value compared with the same period last year.

The average export price of American wines arriving in China grew by 31% to US$5.4 per liter. Overall, American wines account for 2.44% of the market share.
