Incoming Program for Professionals from Norway and Switzerland

30 Nov – 2 Dec 2015 @ Alba & Langhe, Piedmont – Italy

How and why? This incoming action involves the creation of activities in Piedmont for some operators arriving from the target countries of Norway and Switzerland. It is especially aimed at trade operators. The objective of the initiative is to introduce foreign traders, through B2B meeting, to wines and wine producers directly in the Piedmont territory setting so that they can also get to know the vineyards and cellars through guided tours and dedicated seminars.

At registration, Norwegian and Swiss professionals have the possibility to preliminarily identify a maximum of 3 wineries from the list of those participating in the initiative. Visits are planned for Wednesday, 2 December. Choices must be indicated at time of registration.
A schedule indicating appointments at the wineries chosen will be delivered to the professionals at arrival by a representative of Piedmont Red and White Association.

Room, board, transfers, lunches, dinners and breakfasts.

Piedmont Red and White Association is responsible for all arrival transfers (from the Central Station of Milan to Alba and from the Nice airport to Alba). Piedmont Red and White Association is responsible for all departure transfers (from the hotel at Alba to the Central Station of Milan and from the hotel at Alba to the Nice airport).
