ProWein 2016, a rich and innovative programming
The “Route USA” :
The United States is the first market in the world for wine and spirits. A market that despite the different economic turmoil of recent years still retains a growth trend.
The trans-Atlantic market is a dream for many winemakers but remains difficult to address particularly because of different laws of US states, differences in the levels of distribution networks as well as the urgent need to find a serious partner.
On the occasion of the 2016 edition, ProWein in partnership with Wine Enthusiast Import Connection, launches “Route USA“. The objective of this initiative is to introduce US importers with vineyards which wish to be able to enter the US market. The winemakers who are willing will have special signs on their stand enabling them to indicate their interest in finding distribution partners in the United States. Find the list of participating vineyards in the “Route USA” on it.
