The First day of Vinexpo is Over – Not many people as expected

The first day of Vinexpo is over and I have to confess I was expecting more visitors. During the morning there were very few people. After lunch more people came over our stand to try our Ports and Douro wines. Our stand is integrated in the IVDP’s general stand as many others Douro producers. The big Port shippers have their own stands. There are few other Douro producers with stands on the Viniportugal area.

There is a zone reserved by the IVDP for Port Innovation, where a waiter offers Dry White Port and Rosé Port. Very interesting iniciative, where our Rosé Port can be found. Besides Quevedo’s, three other producers have Rosé Port: Croft, Cruz and Poças. From what we have seen and heard, Rosé Port is being very well accepted and most young people love it.

Time to rest!

    Caro Óscar, espero que essa viagem até à Vinexpo corra pelo melhor! Bons contactos e bons negócios!
    Aqui na Câmara temos umas ideias novas relativamente à VINDOURO e gostaria de discutir algumas delas com o Óscar.
    Acabei de criar o twitter.com/vindouro2009 e fique desde já a saber que este ano vai ser a 28, 29 e 30 de Agosto.
    Quando regressar a SJP avise, ok? (Não vem a SJP para as Festas de S. João? A Luciana Abreu e a Diana Chaves esperam-no!!)

    Um abraço e bom trabalho!
