Last Wednesday 19th January 2011, the French Trade Commission Ubifrance in Ireland was pleased to welcome 12 French winegrowers from all over France willing to discover the Irish market and meet with importers and distributors from the wine trade. The fair was held at the Royal College of Physicians, prestigious venue in the city center of Dublin where many marvelous wines were opened for tasting. Thus, 52 importers, distributors, sommeliers and journalists came to discover these exclusive wines from domains and chateaux not yet represented in Ireland. During the morning session, the French winegrowers attended a market presentation from a wine importer and a commented tour of points of sale representatives of the Irish offer. This market discovery helped the French producers to better understand the Irish wine market and its problematic (size and concentration, taxes, margins, competition etc.) before meeting with the local buyers. Visitors of the fair were highly impressed with the quality of the French offer and some agreements have already been reached. Despite morose economic environment, the Irish wine market have a bright future ahead.
