China’s top 10 imported wines by country

1. France

Volume: 98.237 million litres

Value: US$485.1 million

Average bottled wine price: US$4.97 per litre

France, without a doubt, still reigns supreme in China’s wine market, taking up more than 40% of the overall market share.

For many Chinese wine consumers Bordeaux is synonymous with great wine. Outside of Bordeaux and Burgundy, Southern France and the Rhône Valley also seem to offer great value and quality wines.

With heightened competition from other winemaking countries, the value of French wine imports appears to be dropping at times. Compared to the first half of 2016, China’s French wine import value has dropped from last year’s US$503.15 million to US$485.1 million. Nonetheless, the country remains China’s biggest source of imported wines.
