Reverse Trade Mission to Spain For Wine Importers

9  – 13 March 2015

The Trade Mission

The Wine Pleasures Reverse Trade Mission allows wine importers interested in doing business with Iberian Wineries to participate in a workshop and tour 5 different wine producing regions, taste the wines and meet the winery owner and winemaker. The reverse mission differs greatly from a foreign trade mission in that the delegation arriving from a foreign country will have expectations of their own while in Spain. Visiting delegates have the opportunity to become more familiar with Iberian wines while seeking counterparts. A workshop is scheduled to allow for business meetings followed by a winery region visit programme for informal contact and familiarization.
