China + Argentina = Wine
If there is a place to monitor the exponentially growing acceptance of Argentine Wine in China, it’s Hong Kong.
However, Hong Kong does not even come close to representing China’s 1+ Billion citizens and the hard work will be to introduce Argentine wine across the vast country. But with a population of 1.3 billion coupled with a growing economy and spendable money, the rewards appear to be well worth the efforts.
La Vida Buena Vineyards working with one its major vineyard Owners, Finca Artina, has already shipped premium Malbec made using the micro-vinificacion method (French oak barrel fermented and aged). Soon to follow will be Finca Artina’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Chardonnay.

HONG KONG, Dec. 15 (Xinhua) — The government of China’s Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) said on Friday that it has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on cooperation in wine-related businesses with Argentina.
The document, signed by HKSAR Secretary for Commerce Economic Development Edward Yau with Argentinean Investment and Trade Promotion Agency Chief Executive Officer Juan Pablo Tripodi on Thursday in Bueno Aires, will facilitate cooperation between the two sides in wine-related trading and investment promotion, education and training, tourism, and prevention of counterfeiting.
“We are confident that Hong Kong is well-positioned to promote appreciation of Argentinean wines and related culinary arts in Asia,” Yau said.
He said Hong Kong, as Asia’s wine hub and a wine free-port, also offers a world-class business and logistics infrastructure for the wine business to thrive.
Hong Kong has entered wine cooperation agreements with Australia, Chile, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and the United States.
