The UK & Republic of Ireland representative for FENAVIN.

As the official representative for Fenavin in the UK and ROI, we are delighted with the excellent results from our Mission to Fenavin this year with high early sales figures and initial orders made from over 30 Spanish wineries. Both wine writers attending the Fair produced articles, one in Harpers and the other in the Irish Food and Wine Magazine.

Buyers:
Initial feedback has been very promising. Twelve of the UK Buyers we escorted to Fenavin have confirmed orders from over thirty wineries and many are now receiving their 2nd and 3rd deliveries. Six companies are in discussions with a further sixteen wineries. We estimate the current value of exports to be well over 150,000 euros and we expect this to grow considerably in the run up to Christmas.

Press:
Xtend2 escorted two specialist wine writers to Fenavin from the UK and Republic of Ireland resulting in articles in Harpers Magazine in the UK and the Food and Wine Magazine in Ireland.

The Harpers feature by Natasha Hughes can be found on their digital edition. Harpers Fenavin Article October 2013.

Raymond Blake published an article entitled "Our Galician Cousins" about Rias Baixas in the August edition of the Food and Wine Magazine praising the Fenavin Wine Fair and in particular the Wine Gallery of 1,000 or more wines.

Natasha Hughes is a wine and food writer, an experienced international wine show judge and a restaurant reviewer and former section editor for one of the UK’s top-selling restaurant guides.

Raymond Blake is a leading wine writer and educator in Ireland and writes for a number of high profile publications as well as being Wine Editor of the highly regarded Food & Wine Magazine.

Feedback from some of the wine importers we took to Fenavin 2013

"Really good fair, made some excellent contacts and would like to be considered for the next Fenavin"

"A very well organised event – I just wish I could have stayed for longer. We are looking to have a dedicated Spanish offer in the Autumn so we will be looking to ship from 3 or 4 producers met at Fenavin"

"I made contact with a Rioja estate which is perfect for us – so expect a decent volume of imports to develop here"

"Apart from meeting up with wineries we currently do business with it was rewarding to meet new contacts. It's a great fair and we are all full of enthusiasm here so will let you know when we hold our first tasting triggered by Fenavin!"
