Any good wine snob knows that, despite the term’s intended negative connotation, the label should really be worn like a badge of honor.

Why China Can’t Get Enough Australian Wine

It’s not New Zealand or the U.K. or the U.S. that imports the most Australian wine. It’s China. From June 2018 to June 2019, Australia exported $1.2 billion worth of wine to the Asiatic superpower, which is triple the value of wine bought by Australia’s second biggest wine importer, the United States. China’s enthusiasm for Australian wine is a phenomenon that can be explained by the novelty and quality of Australian wine, and China’s roaring economy.
