Mr. Fernandez further stated that «With the expansion of WIM among Ibero-American countries, beyond European borders, this programme becomes a global benchmark of the commitment of the Wine sector with the culture of moderate and responsible consumption. Delivering this commitment is really a strategic priority to ensure the sustainable development of the wine sector globally».
