News from Arendal Vintners
Arendal Vintners will be happy to elaborate on a possible representation of you as a foreign wine makers in the Norwegian market. As representatives our aim is to provide personal follow-up and commitment to a small portfolio of high quality artisanal wine makers in order to give the best possible support. We look for high quality producers with interesting stories to communicate.
The representation comprises both sales towards Vinmonopolet (The state retail monopoly) and in the (free) Horeca market. It is important to underline that the consumer/ retail market in Norway is highly regulated. All stores selling wine are run by the state monopoly (Vinmonopolet), and qualified importers (as Arendal Vintners) have equal possibilities of obtaining a place in the shelves (tastings done blind). Further, all licensed importers have the right to get their products in the so-called “Bestillingsutvalget”, a large online list from which the customers may order any wine.
As advertising of alchol is prohibited in Norway, reviews, tasting events, winemaker’s dinners, wine tours etc are both appreciated by the interested customer and key to nurture brand awareness. As a representative Arendal Vintners will coordinate such activities on behalf of the producers.
With your inquiry to Arendal Vintners, we ask you to provide photos of bottles and labels, vineyard and winery - in addition to product details and an outline of wine making philosophy and most important achievements (in your own opinion).
The Norwegian consumer market is centralized and price sensitive. Quality and diversification (by stories, design etc) are important, but as triggers within the different price levels. Thorough and transparent calculations and discussions are needed to ensure best possible positioning.
Arendal Vintners is always open for suggestions and ideas from people who follow special appellations and districts, either it is commercially, enological, in marketing, journalism or social.
