In February this year, Hong Kong imported 5% lesser wines compared to the record seen in the same month last year.

Based on data from the Census and Statistics Department, the city’s wine importation went down to HK$467 million.

The decline is caused by the decrease in wine imports from its top exporter France, down 16% to HK$288 million. 

Still using Hong Kong as their back door to China, Australian exporters continued to increase exports, rising by 43% to HK$57 million. The United Kingdom also raised their exports to the city by 6% to HK$38 million. 

There was a huge jump in American wines in Hong Kong in the month, up by 86% to HK$31 million. Italian wines also jumped by 47% to HK$18 million.

By category, imported champagne crashed by 61% to HK$16 million. Red wines from international sources grew minimally to HK$419 million. Imported white wines and ports both fell by 4% and 65% respectively. 

Unlike in February last year, the city received an overseas shipment of sherry worth HK$34,000 in February this year.

In the first two months of 2022, Hong Kong’s wine importation dropped by 21% to HK$1.3 billion, dragged down by decreases in importation from France, Australia, and the US.
