Lacrima Baccus, together with a group of vine growers, signs new contracts in the United States during a tour of APVSA.
Those attending the event demanded the selected wines, which attracted 150 importers and distributors during the “Born to be Wine” tour. Among them, there was our Lacrima Baccus Cava in the company of the Barolo Riserva Luna Nera, sophisticated wines and cavas, with original labels that add value to the North American market.
Classic wines and those that offer good value-money were also part of the event. Bodegas Verum, Bodegas Pradorey, Bodegas Castelo de Medina and Lacrima Baccus represented Spain. On the other hand, Barolo Reserva Luna Nera represented the Italian wines. As far as France is concerned, it was possible to negotiate on site with Maison Albert, Sadel, Château Haut-Blanville, Domains Auriol and Cellier des Chartreux, to name but a few. Several Champagne houses traveled with us, including Alain Mercier, Charles Clément, Guy de Forez and Klepka-Sausse.
Each winery paid $ 250 for an exhibition table that included glasses, spittoons, ice cubes and an American-style gourmet buffet. A well spent amount if we take into account that during the event we met relevant buyers.
The next meetings will be held in New York, Washington, Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans, Dallas, Mexico City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal from January 15 to 31. The advance wine selection will take place at the Beacon Hotel in New York (2130 Broadway) on Friday, December 14 with twenty importers and distributors who are already working with APVSA members.
