ASIA is quickly developing a taste for West Australian grapes, with the trickle of premium wine into Singapore growing by almost 50 per cent last financial year. The state’s $720 million wine industry continues to grow in popularity in overseas markets according to the WA Government, which partnered with winemakers in an international marketing campaign in 2012. Wine exports grew by 23 per cent in China, and 19 per cent in the UK, with WA’s Margaret River region leading the charge — representing more than 60 per cent of exports.
