Quevedo começa finalmente a exportar para os EUA

Este é uma passo grande para um pequeno produtor do Douro. Poucas semanas depois de começar este blog, em Julho de 2008, defini como dois dos nossos objectivos prioritários, encontrar um importador para os nossos vinhos no Reino Unido e outro nos Estados Unidos. Em Novembro passado começámos a trabalhar com um importador no Reino Unido: Wine Fantastic. E em Abril de 2010 vai para os EUA a primeira palete. P.R. Grisley parece acreditar nos nossos vinhos e vai levar seis referências: Oscar’s 2008, Porto Branco, Special Reserve Tawny, LBV 2003, Colheita 1996 e Vintage 2007. Alguns destes vinhos vão para o catálogo da rede de lojas do Estado da Pensilvânia, PLCB. Os outros, por agora, vão estar disponíveis numa oferta especial que o fórum de Vinho do Porto For the Love of Port fará para os seus subscritores.

Mas falaremos disso mais tarde, agora é tempo de celebrar e abrir uma garrafa especial da adega. É um sonho que se realiza!

    Óscar, I´ve told you for several times, but is never too much to say that I and Vinixá team believes that Quevedo are a great producer! In fact your proactivity and dinamic is on the base of all the success of your brand. Vinixá knows how hard it is to get to the US market, so this is really a major achievement for the entire team. Plus, you found the right importer! PR Grisley is becoming a fantastic importer, knowing how to promote and fight for our brands! What a wonderful work they´ve been doing! Congratulations also to Michael and Peter! I know you´ll be successful with Quevedo wines!

    Cheers
