Interview of Mr.Arnaud Lisoir – Export Director
Question 1: Do you already export to Asia ? If yes, where ? If no, what type of importers & distributors are you looking for in Asia ?
We are a six wineries family business, from the Rioja region but producing in three prestigious Spanish regions : Rioja, Toro and Castilla-la-Mancha. The Eguren family wine business started in 1875. We already export all around China some of our brands, such as Sierra Cantabria, Teso La Monja and Dominio de Eguren. Some of the wine from Viñedos de Paganos are already imported but not this Calados del Puntido 2015. We are looking for an importer able to take care of our entire winery range and so the 4 wines from Viñedos de Paganos. We want to create a brand with our partners, support them and give them the attention they deserve. We have to build a long-term business relationship as we always do with our partners, growing together and building a success story.
Question 2: What is the most unique and qualitative part of your products, different from competitors ?
Viñedos de Paganos is Marcos Eguren´s (One of the most recognized winemaker in Spain) unique project in the Rioja Alavesa. Started at the end of the 90’s it is now one of the most recognized and famous winery from this famous subzone thanks to wines like La Nieta and Calados del Puntido. Wine awarded from the best critics as “Delicate, subtle, very fine and complex with a Burgundian character, extremely elegant. A world class wine”. Wines harvested and destemmed by hand, foot-pissage, low intervention in the wine process. No machine will touch the grapes, a hand-made designed wine. Everything is designed for the wines to reach perfection!!
Question 3: When did you start to export your brand worldwide, and what is your development plan for the next years ?
In the late 60’s we started to export our brands worldwide, beginning with Switzerland and the European market. At the moment, the local market is still predominant but in the next years we want to balance that percentage to give the international market more weight in the Eguren family Business. And we believe China is the right country to invest our efforts in.
