Brazil is country which is a member of the BRIC  – it is one of the major countries of the world which is currently experiencing an  economic boom –  out of the south American countries is one of the only ones which has  a strong and influential Italian presence. In the Sao Paulo area alone there are 16,000,000 inhabitants of Italian descent.

Our Brunello wineries were visiting San Paulo with the specific aim of expanding their exports and promoting their own image, which is already very well known and respected in the area. In Brazil,  Brunello wine is  synonymous with quality, it has great prestige value and is considered to be very exclusive . Many people know the wine well, but never before they had the opportunity to taste and compare so many of the Brunello wines  all together at their leisure. And it is precisely attaining the public’s awareness and their personal opinions that these important Tuscan wineries intend to devote their attention to: they will be concentrating on impressing their importers, the sommeliers, the press and the leading public opinions.

The program of this trade mission to Brazil was very intense: it  lasted 5 days and as well as promoting the wine it also helped to educate the producers from Montalcino in the details of the Brazilian market ecomony and included a visit to the huge upmarket supermarkets which are major centres of culinary excellence for Brazilain customers with greater spending capacity. The Consorzio del Brunello  had never  before undertaken a trade missions such as this to Brazil and for this reason, the schedule was very full and was designed to hit all the strategic market segments of Brazil. Two of the tastings have been reserved exclusively for the Sommeliers from Sao Paulo and Campinas, there was one  evening with the specialist wine press, one workshop for the importers and one for the retailers, a wine tasting for the Friends Association of Wine and 3 educational seminars with video and data information. The preparation of this trade mission to Brazil has required months of work in order to plan and prepare this detailed  program – in collaboration with ICE and Enoteca Italiana –  especially in the preparation of the Brochures, Wine tasting information leaflets  and the production of the two Videos, which have also  been made available in Portuguese.

In the South American countries import taxes multiple  the price of bottles of wine tenfold which is why they are perceived by  the public as being luxury goods. Because of this it is necessary to ensure that the public perception of the Montalcino wines is that they are of the highest quality as it is important  to capture the interest and admiration of the 200,000 super-rich and the middle class who have a large spending capacity and who reside almost entirely in the areas of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
