WA wine exports to China suffer steep drop

Western Australia‘s wine industry is reassessing the extent of its focus on the China export market on the back of sharp drops in both sales and volume.

Industry figures reveal wine exports to China from WA in the 12 months to July 2014 were down 25 per cent by volume and 20 per cent in sales.
