This wednesday 28th we’ve been awarded at the ceremony of the XXVII Internationalization Awards held by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Alava, the spanish province from which the winery is. This award recognizes our work of expansion and global growth, having offices in United States, China and Peru. We also export more than 60% of our products to over thirty international markets.
Asun Eguren received the award on behalf of all the team of Eguren Ugarte and made a special mention about all the people working abroad to make Eguren Ugarte wines reach every corner in the World. Asun, along with her brother Koldo and her sister Mercedes, are the fifth generation in charge of this traditional family winery that has found in the Internationalization a way around the spanish economic crisis.
The ceremony has also included a series of conferences in which Ignacio Comella, president of Fastenex, Miguel Otero, CEO of Marcas Renombradas Españolas, and Iñaki Garmendia, managing director of Ega Master, have participated.
