With a unique blend of East and West, old and new, Hong Kong is one of Asia’s – and indeed the World’s - top economies and tourist destinations. With strong links to mainland China and the entire Asia- Pacific region, Hong Kong is a major centre for financial and professional services, trading and logistics: making it a key hub for the beverage industry.
Hong Kong is the world’s top fine wine market measured by value. In fact, it is estimated that 18% of the world’s fine wines are owned by Hong Kong collectors, which can be partly attributed to the fact that wines are free of tax and duty in Hong Kong, and can be traded freely.
The wine market in Hong Kong is mature, with the highest per-capita consumption in Asia. Nonetheless, it still has potential to grow as local consumers develop ever more sophisticated tastes, pairing imported wines with local Cantonese cuisine. French wines accounted for 40% of Hong Kong’s wine imports in 2011, underpinned by Vinexpo Asia-Pacific’s continued investment in Hong Kong.
