Among the participating wineries, 11 of them are presenting their wines the first time in Hong Kong and currently looking for an importer in Hong Kong or Mainland China.

Argentine Wine – 2013 & The Future
Alberto Arizu Jr., President of Wines of Argentina, expressed: ‘Wines of Argentina’s 2013 efforts will be focused on integrating the new consumers. For this reason, our activities are oriented to the “Next Generation.”’ Other initiatives include the celebration of Malbec World Day , Argentina Wine Awards and interactive promotions through various online platforms.

All these have strengthened the image of Malbec as an iconic varietal in Argentina and promoted Argentina’s international positioning. For example, Malbec exports income rose in 2012 with respect to 2011 in FOB value, reaching 41 million dollars FOB. Likewise, premium wine exports showed a 13.5% increase and a 15.4% increase in the super premium wine exports for 9-liter cases. Furthermore, over the last decade, a fusion of traditional methods and innovative thinking has fuelled the boom of Argentine wine industry, and now Argentinean wine producers have earned a place on the international stage as world-class wine producers with excellent prospects for the future.

「Celebrate Argentina!」 WINES OF ARGENTINA 2013 亞洲巡迴展
 

Wines of Argentina (WofA) 以推廣阿根廷葡萄酒在世界上的品牌和國家形象為宗旨,今年六月四日,WofA特別呈獻「Celebrate Argentina!」亞洲巡迴展2013 (香港站)。

透過是次機會,WofA希望令活動參加者洞悉阿根廷酒的獨特之處。聯同二十家頂級酒莊,WofA帶來了超凡的精選阿根廷美酒,當中包括富象徵性的葡萄品種Malbec和Torrontés、充滿地區特色的、及未來將成為大家所追求的經典佳釀。參展的酒莊之中,十一家及首次來到香港展示佳釀,並正在募中國內地或香港代理商。

Argentine Wines – 2013與未來
Wines of Argentina 主席Alberto Arizu Jr. 表示:「於二零一三年,Wines of Argentina的焦點落在拉近與新消費者的距離,因此,我們的活動多以『新世代』作為軸心,同時亦有其他的活動,包括『Malbec World Day』的慶祝活動、Argentina Wine Awards大獎和網上平台的互動推廣。

全賴這些努力,除了Malbec(馬貝克)成為了世界知名而又標誌着阿根廷葡萄酒的葡萄品種外,阿根廷的國際地位亦得以提升。例如,以FOB船上交易價格而言,Malbec於二零一二年所帶來的出口收入已超越了二零一一年的收入,達到四千一百萬美元;另外,以九公升裝箱的出口量而言,高級葡萄酒出口有13.5%的增長、頂級葡萄酒則有15.4%的增長。還有,在過去十年,傳統方法和創新思維的融合推動了阿根廷葡萄酒業的繁榮。現在,阿根廷葡萄酒生產商在國際舞台上贏得世界級的地位,有無可限量的前景。
