Why Hong Kong
Zero wine duty
Hong Kong has removed all wine duties since February 2008. With no VAT or GST, Hong Kong is the first free wine port among major economies.
Proximity to the Mainland market
Strong economic performance, increased prosperity and changes in lifestyle have led to a significant rise in the demand for wine in Mainland China. As an international gateway to the Mainland, Hong Kong is in the prime position to capitalize on this trend.
Experience in wine trading
With over 40 years of experience in wine trading, Hong Kong has in-depth knowledge of the industry and the necessary network with vineyards/wine-producing areas.
Understanding of Asian cuisines and wine pairing
Hong Kong people understand the wining and dining preferences of Asians. We also provide a good platform for pairing wines with Asian cuisine.
We have a bilingual business environment with a wealth of seasoned professionals proficient in Chinese and English. Information is made available in both languages as a matter of course.
Hong Kong’s global connectivity, strong foundations as an international business and financial centre, free economy, low and simple tax system, as well as clean and efficient government combine to provide a strong base for the development of wine-related businesses.
