Meeting with French vineyard talent


Meeting with French vineyard talent

About twenty French wine and spirits professionals, together with UBIFRANCE, will be on hand in Taiwan and Japan from May 13th to 16th, 2013. This initial approach into the North-Asian market will consist of information seminars as well as wine tasting sessions reserved to professionals.

Organized by UBIFRANCE in partnership with the Wines & Spirits CCI (Chambers of Commerce and Industry) Club, the operation aims at facilitating business opportunities between French businesses and local professionals in the sector.

There will be precisely 22 French wine and spirits professionals taking part in those meetings, demonstrating their determination to appeal to Asian consumers. Most of them hail from South-Western France (Aquitaine and Midi-Pyrénées Regions), as well as a representative from the Pays de la Loire Region.

The tour will begin on Monday May 13th in Taipei. The morning will be devoted to an introduction to Taiwan’s wine market for the benefit of the French companies. As for the afternoon, it will highlight French wine through a wine tasting session organized for the main Taiwanese players. The session will take place at the Grand Victoria Hotel. A full list of French exhibitors is available upon request from the Ubifrance Office in Taiwan.

In 2012, total wine imports (all categories) reached 168,330 hectoliters, worth in excess of €101m, up 13.7% in value.

The 6% drop in volume seen in 2012 was a result of an increase in the average price of imported wine, which in just one year rose from €4.98 to €6.02 (an inflation for imported wine at almost 21%).

In 2012, spirits imports stood at €346m, up over 6.5% as compared to 2011.
