The Italian Trade Agency (ITA) has launched a new B2B online platform named "Smart 365". As stated in their press release, the platform is designed to "facilitate and simplify trade relations with Italy's wine world."
This innovative platform will grant international importers and traders’ access to the contact details of over 200 Italian wine producers from a range of wine regions. There are plans to further expand this selection. Users can filter wineries by region and wine category, including red, rosé, white, and sparkling wines.
In addition to this, the website will also offer information on upcoming international events across various industries, including fashion and tech. Currently, the platform is accessible in both English and Italian.
Francesco Alfonsi, Director of the German ITA office in Berlin, remarked, “Wines from indigenous grape varieties, exciting new projects, and lesser-known, smaller wineries have garnered significant attention. In an effort to continue this momentum and provide an easy, always accessible means for connection, our Smart 365 platform is now also being launched for the wine industry."
