Tour Argentina’s harvest season this March
The goal of this trip is bring Argentine Wineries and buyers together. It is open to Importers, Distributors and Select Retailer’s who are looking to source wines from Argentina.
The focus will be on small to medium sized wineries with little or no presence in the North American market and wines that will sell between $7 - $10, with some exceptional wines with ratings up to $15 and beyond.
We will also be working with these wineries to create private labels in the entry collections for large supermarket and monopolies.
