Clúster Turismo de Galicia presented both projects at the Galician stand in Fitur

The two brands, launched last year, will continue their development in 2017 to improve the marketing of tourism

Conceived with the aim of improving the commercialization and specialization of Destino Galicia, the Enoturismo Galicia and Galicia, Destino Destino brands had their place in the presentation program of the Galician stand in Fitur.

“At this point no one doubts Galician wine tourism potential,” explained the president of the Cluster Turismo Galicia, Francisco González, “but in conversation with the Galician Wine Routes we have been aware of the importance of creating a strong and unique brand That brings together all this heritage and facilitate the work of marketing. Gonzalez also highlighted the importance of wine tourism as a backbone of a differentiated and quality tourism, working hand in hand to promote its marketing through wine tourism packages.

This is how the Enoturismo Galicia brand is born, in which the resources of the Wine Routes of O Ribeiro, Ribeira Sacra, Rías Baixas, Monterrei and Valdeorras are grouped, following their adhesion to the Clúster Turismo de Galicia. The president of the Rías Baixas Wine Route, Juan Gil, in the name of all the Routes, encouraged those present to know this heritage: “come to know how we elaborate our extraordinary wines, come and see our vineyards, so different Of all the known, from the most beautiful vineyards by the sea of ​​the Rías Baixas to the heroic terraces of the Ribeira Sacra, from the slate slopes of Valdeorras to the highlands of Monterrei, through the beautiful vegas and granitic smallholdings of Ribeiro “, While emphasizing that Galicia has an impressive raw material to be among the first national destinations to enjoy nature and wine tourism.

Galicia, attraction pole for family tourism
