While we take care of your visits, you have more time to focus on the “heart” of your visit.

Whether you are a group of wineries or an individual winery, we can organize your events in specific markets to create a stronger brand presence.

Exporting Globally

Canada is known for being a “green” country which produces safe, high-quality products.
 Simply by being Canadian, your wines are in demand in traditional, established export markets like Europe and the US, as well as in the high-growth economies of China. For example, in China, there is a strong demand for imported wine driven by improved living standards and increased disposable incomes. Wine is also increasingly seen as a ‘status symbol.’

Different global markets invariably have different and often new ideas, management practices, marketing techniques and ways of competing.

Foreign markets are more diverse, and consumer habits and needs differ in each country, thereby offering increased opportunities for your wines.

Improve your business profile

Talk about how your wine is sold in Europe, the US, or China, etc. and you’ll find that your credibility and reputation significantly improves.

How we help

We’ll focus on the specific requirements of your individual situation.

• Analyzing export needs; “matchmaking” the producer to the importer within a number of markets; helping create the right export product – wine style, packaging, etc.
• Marketing / PR – writing of marketing material (brochures, tasting notes, vintage reports, etc.); PR development, including managing international presence and journalistic relations

Reach more customers and increase your sales. Start Benefiting from Exporting.
