Looking East from Barcelona

Angela at Alimentaria

More progress in 2006.......

In the weeks leading up to Alimentaria we were successful in adding Germany to our list of exporting countries (not an easy market to penetrate owing to their own white wine production). We also strengthened our position in the U.S., by adding to our importer network across the Altlantic.

Alimentaria in Barcelona, was a typically exhausting wine fair week - long days on the feet, and too many late nights - artificial sleeping potions were not required! Our efforts were well rewarded however, with interest being shown from not only some interesting European markets, but also from one or two much further afield. Not wishing to count the proverbial chickens, we will post more information about these new contacts as and when the first wine has been shipped!

Back at base in Galicia, pruning work in the vineyards is almost complete, and Spring officially starts today. Happily it is also the time of year to start stocking up with AlbariƱo, and we have been quite busy preparing orders for our customers. May this serve as a reminder - If you haven't placed your new orders yet, then now is the time!
