China wine demand keeps climbing

Consumption of wine has grown 136% in China over the last five years.

The nation is now the largest wine market in the world.

Though China is the 5th largest wine producer and will meet much of the demand internally, consumers have shown a willingness to pay up for premium global brands.

    Brown-Forman is largely out of the wine business. Not sure why it's even mentioned here.

    I believe the article refers to drinkers of wine, not producers of wine. There are now more Chinese that drink wine than French people. That said, the favorite alcoholic beverage in China is not wine nor beer but "Baijiu" produced in China for Chinese. China has a large population.
