Dear wine lovers,
Our vines have, so far, resisted to the high Mildiou pressure and since the Mistral and Sun are back, they give me a little break to try to find new markets.
My initial plan was to distribute most of our production to the USA but the unfortunate combinasion of a weak dollar and a slowdown of the economy have discouraged some importers to bring new lines in their portfolio.
I have then started to develop the French market with Paris, Marseille and local places. Recently, I have also explored new spots and we just received an order from Malaisia. I also shipped some samples to Brazil, Japan and Australia and took some good contacts in Denmark and Belgium.
Of course, I would idealy like to sell most of our production in the US but those "unfortunate" economic evenments have obliged us to look for new horizons and eventually not put all our egges in the same basket.
And while I was exploring new markets, I had the pleasure to hear from some great guys in CA who told us that they will start importing Rouge-Bleu. Let's hope that the guys from WA (who orally said yes) and AZ where I am still strugling to find the right guy (any help here ?) will soon join our NY, TX and OR ambasadors which can be contacted here. are 3
