For the first time Vinexpo Hong Kong hosts the World of Organic Wine (WOW!).

Indeed, on a global scale, according to Harvard Business Review, less than 5% of the world’s vineyards are organic. However, in Sweden, it is reported that around 10% of wine sold is organic. Whichever way you look at it, there is a lot of room on the upside. Asia’s organic market is experiencing solid growth, with consumption of organic produce increasing exponentially. Trends in organic wine consumption are set to gain further momentum over the coming years, in view of the sharp increase in the number of Chinese vineyards producing wines from organic farming.

Unveiled for the first time at Vinexpo Bordeaux 2017, this area dedicated entirely to organic and biodynamic wines was an immediate hit with importers, sommeliers and wine merchants seeking a clearly defined organic offer to meet the demand of this new booming market. A total of 62 international producers are exhibiting in this organic wine area at Vinexpo Hong Kong this week, with tasting tables specially designed to attract visitors from around the globe.
