In recent years, with the growth of domestic young consumer groups, the improvement of overall quality of life and the popularization of wine cognition, wine consumption has gradually shifted from business banquets and luxury gifts to personal enjoyment and daily consumption. The data shows that wine sales reached 1.787 billion liters in 2017, and China is one of the most attractive wine markets in the world now. However, the terminal form of the wine has updated in 2018. Under the impact of the new retail concept, there have been wine chain stores, wine-themed social spaces, and wine unmanned vending machines in market. A variety of new retail models impact the wine sales terminal, which enriches the industry’s terminal form, and provides consumers with more access to wine channels. Under the trend of the flatting of distribution channel, more and more wine companies and big businessmen have crossed the middlemen and directed marketing objectives to the terminal. In the future, the main marketing appeal of wine will focus on key words, such as “cost performance”, “quality” and “wine worth buying for consumers”. At present, many foreign wineries and importers have also chosen to directly enter the terminal market in the form of direct-sale and franchise to associate with the end consumers without middlemen. And for this, the organizer of SUPERWINE, Golden Commercial （GOLDENEXPO）is scheduled to hold “Shanghai International New Retail Wine Summit and Direct-Sale & Franchise Investment Exhibition 2019” on May 29-31, 2019 in National Exhibition and Convention Center. It aims at creating opportunity for more wine companies at home and aboard to directly target the terminal sales market, and helping enterprises to obtain first-hand data from consumers, while adjusting product strategies and directions through big data analysis, and control brands in their own hands as well. In the long run, it may have an incalculable impact on the pattern and circulation of the wine market.
