Great contacts from Scandinavia and South America

After the gap in trade shows caused by the pandemic, Dimitris Markou, the export manager of Cavino Winery & Distillery, was “really happy” to be at Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris 2022.
“It seemed that after two years, people wanted to visit the clients, they wanted to visit their suppliers and to find new opportunities,” he said.
Founded in 1958 in Aigio by Konstantinos Anastasiou and Ioannis Douskas, Cavino remains a family-run winery and distillery and is the biggest wine exporter in Greece, with a 17% share of international sales. The company produces 5 million bottles a year and exports to 52 countries, with main markets being Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Russia and the United States.
Dimitris was particularly glad to make contacts with representatives from Scandinavia and South America during the show, both regions to which the company hopes to increase exports.
This was especially helpful, he said, as getting to see South American clients in particular is difficult.
“We will be really happy and really pleased to come again next year. Our strategic planning is to visit every year,” he said.
