Wines from Alentejo in Angola to enhance commercial relationships and create new business opportunities

Luanda hosted, this Tuesday, a training session and a wine dinner. Promoted by the Comissão Vitivinícola Regional Alentejana (CVRA) for partners and customers, as well as opinion leaders, the actions aimed to promote the quality of Alentejo wines, as well as enhancing commercial relations and creating new business opportunities in the Angolan market, which is currently the fifth destination market for Alentejo wines.


According to Francisco Mateus, president of the CVRA board, this Tuesday's actions – in which wine educator Sebastião Vemba participated, and which took place at the Embarcad'ouro Restaurant – will not be the only ones to be implemented. Quoted in a statement sent to VerAngola, the person responsible made it known that a training session and a wine dinner are scheduled to take place again in June.

"This training and this dinner mark the return of our actions to Angola, a territory where we intend to reinforce investment and the presence of Alentejo wines, as well as foster beneficial and solid partnerships and business opportunities", said Francisco Mateus.

"Some of the best and most emblematic Portuguese wines are born in Alentejo. This region is the sales leader (in value) in the Portuguese market, having ended the year 2023 with a market share of more than 35 percent. With 30 percent of production of wine from the Alentejo region to be exported, Angola has occupied a prominent place in international markets, it is currently the fifth destination market for Alentejo wines", added Francisco Mateus.

According to the statement, last year "one million liters of wines from Alentejo were exported to Angola, which at ex-Portugal prices, represented a total of 3.8 million euros, corresponding to 3.4 billion kwanzas ".

It should be noted that CVRA was created in 1989, being responsible for ensuring "control of the origin and quality of wines" from the Alentejo region, located in the south of Portugal, as well as "for their certification with Denomination of Controlled Origin (DOC) or Alentejano Geographical Indication, this certification guarantees the quality of the wines that reach consumers' tables".
