Representatives from 25 wineries are set to take part in the 2022 Borsa Vini Italia on 8 November at the Hyatt Centric, Dean Street, The Liberties, Dublin.
The event will showcase an impressive line-up of wines with producers travelling from Abruzzo, Emilia Romagna, Lazio, Lombardy, Marche, Piemonte, Puglia, Sicilia, Toscana and Veneto. All are seeking representation on this market.
The concept behind Borsa Vini Italia is that of a wine exchange whereby owners and winemakers will present their wines to the Irish trade who will be able to meet with winery personnel directly.
The 2021 Wine Market Report published by Drinks Ireland Wine in August gave a comprehensive overview of the Irish market for 2021. Wine consumption per capita in Ireland was 2.8 litres and total case sales were to 8.8 million. According to their data, Italy retained its position as the 5th most popular country of origin with 10% of the Irish market with sales of Italian wine totalling 875,755 cases.
Antonietta Kelly of the Italian Trade Commission said: “We are delighted to be returning to Ireland to present these fabulous wines and producers to the Irish wine buyers and trade. Our focus will be to connect key businesses from Italy and Ireland, in a forum that is specifically aimed at importers, independents and restaurant trade. We hope to highlight the diversity, quality and value of wines produced in Italy.”
