Our export team flew to Southern California in order to give commercial support to the sellers.
The first day we were very animated in the company of Mark, from Wine Warehouse who with his energetic attitude and entrepreneurial spirit, accompanied us to visit restaurants and shops in the areas bordering Los Angeles. The feedback turned out to be very positive and the cava, as we realized during the last trips, is a product that finally starts to have a good status.
The following day, in company of Danielle, who visited our winery two years ago during the periodic visit that Classical wines organizes each year and who hosts pleasant memories of our winery, we toured restaurants and end customers. The day is much more intense than the previous one, visiting a total of 6 wineries and restaurants. The interest was very high and the questions were very frequent and specific. The implicated areas were Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Downtown, a potential market for our brand and the embodiment of our desire that finally becomes reality.
The days followed with an increasingly intense agenda and this motivated us and made us even more pretentious and hopeful.
Between clients and clients, we found different situations and scenarios to consider. A restaurant was intrigued with our products and passed a command at the time of the visit; other customers remained faithful to their Prosecos and are immovable.
Later, we moved to Orange Country to spend a day working with Edward, discovering every corner of the spot and getting to know the inhabitants up close. This county is one of the pristine areas of the United States. An always-sunny place, full of breathtaking views of the ocean and rich of attractions for all ages.
In one of our routes, we met the owner of an Italian restaurant that serves our Extremarium cava and he is so much satisfied with our products that he would like to expand its range with new references.
There is no doubt that Orange County is a key for us being a tourist and family place, we do not forget that it has the Disneyland Park. Among characters such as Alice in Wonderland, Dumbo and Mikey mouse, and restaurants where meals are organized with the best-known characters, we organized a tasting of our products. It was something sensational and in special and sometimes strange company!
The last day is propaedeutic and served as a training for the Wine Warehouse team that consists of 20 workers with a subdivision in Sothern team and Northern team. Our intention was to clarify and explain the process of elaborating a cava, since not everyone has knowledge of the traditional method of production and enter more specifically about our range of cavas.
This business trip was surely unique in its kind and incomparable. Summing up we can firmly affirm that the US market is receiving our products very positively and openly, the outlook is very versatile and the interest and desire to try new products, experience new sensations and pairings and the value of quality, is very great.
