China prefers wines with corks over screw caps

A recent survey by China CTR Marketing Research Group found that Chinese wine drinkers prefer corks. 98.6% of urban wine drinkers believe that cork is “beneficial”, while 85% agree that the presence of a cork stopper influences wine selection.

The desire for cork has meant that even New Zealand and Australian producers who led the move to screw cap have had to ship 8 out of 10 bottles with cork closures, according to APCOR, the Portuguese Cork Association.
