An interesting article from Quartz on China’s wine consumption. Interestingly enough, it looks like the US, China, and Brazil are the only economic powerhouses where wine consumption has increased since 2008. Of course, China’s increase is unlike any other nation’s, perhaps due to a rapid rise in the number of HNWIs and a growing class of elite business owners.
