Aust wine exports to China pass $1bn

April 16, 2018

Australian wine exports to China are valued over $1 billion boosted by lower tariffs.

The value of Australian wine exports to China lifted by 51 per cent in the year to March 2018 to reach $1.04 billion - the first time that exports to a single country have hit that level.

The latest data from Wine Australia shows that total exports for the 12 months grew by 16 per cent to $2.65 billion, which is the highest value in 10 years.

Wine Australia said wine exports to China had grown as wine tariffs had dropped again in January 2018, in line with the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement.
