In a first, European wine reaches China by train


24 - jul - 17

There is a lot of buzz in the wine world with a new railroad being used recently to export European wine to China. This is the first time that wine has been sent all the way from Europe to Asia via a rail route. All previous shipments were transported through the oceans.

According to Forbes.com, the shipment left Germany on May 5th and reached China on June 2nd. The 28-day-trip was actually eight days shorter than a standard waterway trip. Six countries and 11,400 kilometres were covered.

The trip was an experiment carried out by F Hillebrand, a firm that exports alcoholic drinks, and Groupe InterRail, which runs container trains between Asia and Europe.

Though it was successful, the trip brought forth many challenges. The biggest challenge was the changing weather conditions that the bottles were subjected to. In the heat of May, the weather conditions in central Asia are brutal and that spells potential harm for the wines. The containers however were properly insulated to ensure the bottles remained safe. It was however concluded that all further journeys could only be carried out in spring and autumn.
