AIN collaborates with Government of Navarre, ReynoGourmet certification (Navarre’s Institute of Agrifood Technology and Infraestructures), and CPAEN-NNPEK (Council of the ecological agrarian production of Navarre) in the organisation of the FIVEbio Tour 2019 (https://www.five-bio.com/en/) The FIVEbio Tour is an inward trade mission in the Organic Wine sector to Navarre that will be held on the 2nd and 3rd of September and is open to importers and distributors worldwide. The Enterprise Europe Network will help in the dissemination of the event amongst distributors and importers aiming to achieve a high level of participants.
The quality of the Navarrese organic wine is identified under the regional organic standards of the Autonomous Region of Navarre with wines included in the Designation of Origin D.O. Navarre and D.O La Rioja. A small number of other Spanish D.O. will be also shown during the tour (to be confirmed in the following days).
The dates, 2nd and 3rd September have been carefully chosen in order to allow visitors to feel, smell, touch the vines right before the “vendimia-vintage” when grapes are harvested.
International distributors and importers will be treated as guests in our region and will be invited to visit 4 different wineries and meet there 15 different organic Spanish wines in each. Guests are expected to arrive to Pamplona on Sunday 1st September and will be received with an official welcome dinner. The visitors will be hosted at AC Ciudad de Pamplona from where they will depart each day. The trips will last from 30 to 40 minutes at the most and they will be able to meet with around 60 wineries. Gastronomy will also be part of this discovery trip. Lunches and dinners will consist of local organic food and will take place in the wineries.
Travel, accommodations and subsistence expenses for importers and distributors are 100% funded by organisers.
