New promotional tour in Norway

On 25 and 26 March 2019 I Vini del Piemonte came back to Norway with two days of promotional initiatives addressed to trade and consumers in Oslo and Bergen.


I Vini del Piemonte has always looked with particular interest to the Scandinavian area and, for years, it has been steadily present in Norway, on of the most important market in the world for the consumption of top quality wine. In fact, here Italy is in first place for the export of red wines, not only for the volumes (15.5 million litres) but also for the value. The situation is particularly positive for Piedmont, which, in 2014, achieved the second position overall in the exports of red bottled wine, continuing to grow more than all the other Italian regions also in the years which followed.

Considering this strategic importance, I Vini del Piemonte has organized a new promotional tour on 25 and 26 March 2019. This event involved Piedmontese producers who offered a “Piedmontese experience” in Oslo, and Bergen.
