Hong Kong’s financial secretary announced that the total value of wine imports to the region in 2011 was around £750 million. Speaking at the opening of the fair, John Tsang Chun-Wah was enthusiastic about the future of the wine market in Hong Kong. He said that the city is now the largest auction centre in the world and that it sold £144 million of wine in 2011.
All the major Bordeaux chateaux will be represented at the fair: Petrus, Lafite, Haut-Brion, Mouton and Margaux.
At Capital Vintners we follow the increase in fine wine investment from the Far East, in particular Hong Kong. We will be opening an office in Hong Kong very shortly so that we can have a presence in this rapidly expanding wine market.
