Wine, 19 Sardinian companies fly to Canada


Nineteen Sardinian wineries will take part in the 23rd edition of the "Grandi Degustazioni in Canada” (Great Tastings in Canada), an event which will take place in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal from October 22nd to 31st. The event is considered an important commercial reference for Canadian professionals in the sector. The Region in collaboration with ICE, the Italian Foreign Trade Agency, promoted the initiative.

The Canadian market is one of the most important internationally and is the fifth destination for Italian wines. In the North American country, the attention to quality agro-food products and per capita wine consumption are growing. Last summer the Sardinian entrepreneurs were involved in some seminars of orientation to international markets organized in the context of Export Sud 2, the plan of activities that promotes the internationalization of small and medium-sized enterprises through promotional initiatives at favourable conditions for companies in the less developed Italian regions.
