    Wine imports reached an all-time high last year as more people opted to drink at home and throw house parties amid the coronavirus lockdown.

    According to data from the Korea Customs Service released on Monday, Korea imported nearly 39,000 tons of wine worth almost US$240 million from January to November -- far higher than the $204 million recorded in 2019.

    Imports have more than doubled over the past decade from $113 million in 2011.
