Although Amazon has opened its first convenience store, the company has stated that claims that it will open more than 2,000 brick-and-mortar grocery stores are not true.

China's Wine Imports Grow Dramatically, Without U.S.

By Richard M. Blau, Chair Regulated Products Group, GrayRobinson, P.A. 

China imported US $1.77 billion worth of wines during the first nine months of 2016, representing a 19.1% year-over-year increase. China’s total volume of wine imports also jumped 14.42% to over 464 million liters from January to September, according to the China Association for Imports & Exports of Wines & Spirits, the nation’s official trade association. China’s bottled wine imports totaled about US $1.66 billion, a year-on-year increase of 20.64%, and accounted for 93.4% of all imported wines. In volume terms, the country imported more than 354 million liters of wines, a 19.06% increase compared with the same period last year.

What is especially surprising about these numbers is the comparatively small role played by U.S. wines. Despite America’s premier reputation for fine wine making, the United States represents a very small amount of China’s overall wine imports.
