Čadež: We want to bring super buyers for our wines from Verona to Belgrade
The Wine Fair "Wine Vision by Open Balkan" presented almost 100 wineries and wines from Serbia, Albania, and North Macedonia at the largest Italian wine fair "Vinitaly", which opened its gates yesterday in Verona. There was great interest in domestic varieties of wines from our region among guests, buyers, and distributors at the Open Balkan stand which was organized by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia (CCIS)
The "Wine Vision by Open Balkan" booth was visited by the leaders of Albania, North Macedonia, and Serbia, Edi Rama, Dimitar Kovačevski, and Aleksandar Vučić, accompanied by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Italy, Antonio Tajani. President Vučić said that he agreed with the hosts from Verona that the "Vinitaly" fair will also be presented at the "Wine Vision by Open Balkan" wine fair, which will be held in Belgrade in November.
CCIS President Marko Čadež pointed out that for CCIS, the goal of this presentation of winemakers from Open Balkan countries is to attract the largest wine traders and distributors from Italy and the world to come to Belgrade in November.
"Today, there are 1,000 wine super buyers in Verona that we want to see at our Open Balkan wine fair, and that's why the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Serbia organized this stand, to show that Serbia, North Macedonia, and Albania also have something to offer when it comes to wines. After the fairs in Dusseldorf and Verona, we will present Open Balkan wines in Vienna and Paris," said Čadež. Čadež spoke briefly with Italian Foreign Minister Antonio Tajani at the wine fair in Verona, and on Monday in Rome, he will participate in a meeting of Western Balkan foreign ministers.
