Pays d'Oc IGP Campaign 2014


Pays d’Oc IGP has an exciting portfolio of events and activities coming up for 2014. Building on the success of last year’s campaign and Pays d’Oc continuing growth in the UK market, Inter Oc, the trade association for Pays d’Oc IGP wines from the Languedoc-Roussillon region, have created a campaign to reinforce their position in the UK market as the 3rd largest exporter by volume and value.

Inter Oc will focus on informing both trade and consumers through a series of masterclasses and tastings, along with regular newsletters and press activity.
