Italian wine export volumes fell in Q1

Guerrieri Rizzardi has appointed a new export manager as the Italian wine producer seeks to strengthen global distribution.

Daniel Stewart, who replaces Rupert Dean in the role, will be based at Guerrieri Rizzardi’s head office in Bardolino, the company said this week. Stewart previously worked for O’Brien’s Wine Group for ten years.

“The opportunity to join the Italian wine industry is one that I intend to maximise and I hope to further Guerrieri’s success,” Stewart said.

Figures last month showed that export sales of Italian wine increased by 10% in value in this year’s first quarter, but volumes fell slightly.
