The VinoGrad Themed Venu

Marketing and Promotion of Russian Wine: From Dusk to Dawn

17 Jun , 12:00–13:30
The "VinoGrad" Program
Open dialogue
Passage in zone G, VinoGrad

The development of the country's economy implies the development not only of the industrial segment but also of agriculture, in particular viticulture. However, it is impossible to develop a sector which is practically "forbidden". This affects not only the industry itself, but also all sectors directly or indirectly related to it. The lack of promotional tools and restrictions leads us to a situation where the consumption of quality domestic wine is virtually forbidden. The undeveloped culture of alcohol consumption in our country, in turn, leads to an increase in the illegal production of these products, with all the negative consequences for the health of citizens and the Russian economy.
In the context of the President of the Russian Federation V. Putin's order to adopt a set of measures to increase the promotion of domestic wines in the domestic market, the panellists will raise topical issues for the industry. In particular, experts will express their views on legislative restrictions, which impede full promotion of domestically produced wines. How can one speak about the industry when it is practically impossible to promote wine? And is it even possible to think of legislative mechanisms that would really help the industry to develop?
