The Chinese are discovering wine. According to experts, the market grew by 140 per cent between 2006 and 2010. Today, China is the fifth largest wine market in the world. And the more exclusive and expensive the vintage, the better – because here, wine is not only a drink, it is also a status symbol. The most important trans-shipment point is Hong Kong. In a former warehouse right on the harbour, DHL Global Forwarding has invested more than one million euros in its Wine Hub.
