The Ministry of Agriculture toasts with Original Baga@Bairrada and announces the increase in exports of Portuguese wine

PositiveWine attended SISAB (International Food and Beverage Sector Exhibition) that took place on 12 and 14 of February at the Altice Arena.
The ministry of Agriculture, Capoulas Santos, visited our space, tasted our products and was pleased with their quality. Still close to our stand, he announced that in 2017 the wine exports had a growth of 7.5% in comparison to 2016.
In 2017 the production of wine increased and so did its quality, despite the fact that it was a year of constraints and drought. The economy grew 2.7% and it registered the biggest growth in 17 years.
Portugal draws near to 780 million euros of exports and this sector continues growing and to export with increasingly more quality and innovation.
