Sales of Wine
Wine is the only artwork you can drink
Bovin’s quality driven strategy of targeting the domestic market’s high-end consumers has paid the dividend of increasing the exports. Out of the entire quantities of wine produced in 1998, 80% were sold on the home market and 20% were exported, whereas out of the quantities of wine produced from the 2003 crop 45% were sold on the domestic marked and 55% exported to foreign markets. This was clearly an indication of the upward export trend and in 2011 the export has reached 75% from the sales and the 25% sales on the domestic market was more than the 80% in the 1999.
Today Bovin wines are found on 5 continents in Europe, North America, Africa, Australia and Asia in totally 36 countries. More details about where to find Bovin wines go to Distribution.
