 Potential showcase
The President of the Regulatory Council of the Designation of Origin Valdeorras,José Luis García Pando, is fully satified with Valdeorras wine representation in Prowein and he highlights the “potential showcase” of the involvement in this German trade fair:”it is one of the most remarkable trade events, not only within Europe but also globally, with over 6,000 exhibitors from 300 different wine regions”.

García Pando hopes that Prowein will contribute to “reinforce the positioning of the Valdeorras brand” as well as allowing to “promote our wines in new market niches”. “Last year, over 55,000 visitors attended this specialized event and many of them were professionals linked to the wine sector such as restaurateurs or distributors”, he stated.

Moreover, “there are many specialized journalists who also attend this event” – added García Pando – and “our involvement will help to continue strengthening the presence of our wines in the media”. “The media coverage – as the President of the Regulatory Council stated – has been progresively increased during 2017, according to a research carried out by a concultancy specialized on wine, which has been published recently.
