According to Canada Agriculture and Agri-Food Report, icewine has proved particularly popular in Asia Pacific and Southeast Asian markets in recent years, as the fascination with Icewine's unique production (i.e. handpicked frozen grapes during winter months) is widespread among these regions' consumers. In fact, Icewine is extremely rare in Asian markets, and the "sought after/exclusive" product is often purchased when visiting Canada as gifts or investments, let alone for drinking. The growth of Canadian Icewine in Asian markets is realized firsthand in export data; approximately 74% of Canadian Icewine is exported to Asian markets, a value of $6.3 million in 2009. Furthermore, seven of the top ten Canadian Icewine export destinations are Asian countries, signifying the popularity of the dessert wine in this region. The export of Icewine is the most feasible opportunity for Canada at present.
Icewine spelled out as one word is a registered trademark of Canada but producers have problems enforcing the law abroad. In addition to poor IPR controls, China also has poor market management and supervision. Standards for wine under the responsibility of the AQSIQ.
