On September 19, we will set off to participate in the event for independent importers called “Dirty Dozen“. A chance to find out for ourselves the needs of the English market and the City’s new tendencies.
The event will be held in Glaziers Hall (Montague Close, near London Bridge) and will feature the presence of the “dirty dozen,” as the members of this group are called, in reference to Roberto Aldrich’s well-known film, namely: Astrum Wine Cellars, Clark Foyster Wines, Flint Wines, FortyFive10, H2Vin, Howard Ripley, Indigo Wine, Maltby & Greek, Raymond Reynolds, Roberson Wine, The Wine Treasury and SWIG.
In the programme, tastings of many brands from all over the world, including some Galician ones, will be the main features of a very interesting day. The event will also attract other important players in the sector, eager to discover the importers’ portfolio.
Wines with opportunity
The United Kingdom was the world’s second wine importer in 2017, as regards both value and turnover, according to data by ICEX Spain Export and Investment. Many professionals view it as a gateway towards other foreign markets, an essential first step for selling abroad. Our brands are in fifth place as a purchasing option in exports to Britain. Please note: one of the most interesting aspects to bear in mind regarding this public is that it is becoming more and more sophisticated, and consuming more expensive, better quality wines.
An essential market that provides a great opportunity for Galician wineries, which are gradually entering it but have yet to be discovered by the most discerning and daring English palates.
