Wines of Germany (DWI) with new focus on Russia

07/13/2018

Over the past two years a new positive trend for wine imports has been observed on the Russian market following the drastic decline in wine imports from Germany to Russia since 2010. Meanwhile, Russian consumers tend to appreciate German wines more and more, and the average price of exported wines from Germany has increased significantly.


Demand for Riesling has been growing in particular. However, wine exporters have to deal with bureaucratic hurdles and risks. In order to be able to support already existing exporters in doing business with Russia and to help them target the market, Wines of Germany plans to open an information office in Russia by the end of this year. Currently, efforts are made to identify a suitable partner.

Prodexpo Moscow 11 - 15 February 2019

One of the first steps Wines of Germany has taken in Russia is to organize its participation at Prodexpo exhibition in Moscow with a German pavilion. Prodexpo is one of the most important international exhibitions for food in Russia and an ideal place for experienced wine producers to look for importers and distributors in Russia. The 26th International Exhibition for Food, Beverages and Food Raw Materials takes place from 11 to 15 February 2019. The pavilion of "Wines of Germany" will be located in the Prodexpo hall for "Alcoholic Drinks. Wine Salon". Binding online registration until 31 July 2018.

Further measures

Producers who already have existing business relations in Russia may find it helpful to benefit from a presentation on German wines worked out by Wines of Germany in English and Russian language. Furthermore, preparations are well under way for a new edition of Öchsle Magazine in Russian. For more information please contact Manuela Liebchen at ml(at)deutscheweine.de.
