ProChile, an institution operating under the Chilean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, receives the Prize Voice of Wine 2017 for its constant encouragement of Chilean wine in foreign markets and their remarkable marketing and advertising campaigns, and because it spreads the superb quality and diversity of their wines around the world, in addition to having come to make wine one of the great insignias of the Chilean foreign trade.

Alejandro Buvinic, director of ProChile, provided these comments when informed of the award: “For ProChile, it is an honor to receive this prize Voice of Wine 2017, which is given by World Bulk Wine Exhibition, because it shows that the work that we have carried out as an institution since we started operating –and in the case of the wine, this work has been continuous and evolving– has been fruitful and it is now renowned. Today, Chile is the 4th global wine exporter accounting for more than US$ 1,800 million, where bulk wine represents 42% of our overall shipments. All this is due largely to varied promotional measures, through diverse programs and tools with campaigns across all continents. This leadership is the merit of our producers, but also of this institution that for many years has been supporting the promotion and entrance to new markets”.



Wine of Moldova receives the Voice of Wine 2016 Award, “for the efforts of its winegrowers, wineries and public administration in the promotion of bulk wine, for its ability to adapt to international markets and for the quality of their wines”.

Otilia Romero de Condés, director of the WBWE and president of the jury underlined the “great deal of effort invested by the Moldavian wine sector of adapting with the times and not depending exclusively on sales to tradicional country clients”.

In Moldova, 250.000 jobs rely on vineyards and wineries. The Moldavian wine industry represents 3.2% of GDP and 7.5% of exports. These numbers are due to the effortless activity of 140 companies that manage to export for an annual value of approximately 150 million Euros.
