The importance of wine tourism:

(Source: Survey by ArteBacchus amont wineries in Cataluña, Spain, 2015)

  • I think visits are important to gain customer loyalty.
  • 100% important to promote our company.
  • Each visit is important to us as quite often they come back to buy and/or they recommend the visit and our products to friends, family members, companies
  • Very important, since given the modest dimensions of our winery they help us much to make more direct sales.
  • Very important. It is the gateway that allows us to access potential customers which otherwise would be inaccessible to us.
  • Very important, as above all it gives the opportunity to come to know a protected designation of origin (PDO) (note: in Spanish: D.O. = Denominacion de Origen) like ours, which is not known broadly.
  • Very interesting. Coming to know the product establishes an emotional relationship which with other products the client does not have.
  • Very important for enhancing and strengthening the brand.
  • We understand that this service of offering visits to our winery is very important in order to consolidate the brand and to increase customer loyalty.
  • Essential. It is the only possibility for small wineries to survive in a global market.
  • Many of our current clients became clients after a visit. Or they come for a visit to reaffirm. So it's very important

Foreign tourists. the gold mine for your expansion!

(Note: The following relates to Spain and especially also to the autonomous region of Cataluña with its capital Barcelona. However similar situations will also be found in other regions of the wine world.)

Spain is the biggest tourist destination in Europe:

The example of Cataluña indicates the opprtunities for the expansion of your business..

Everything starts with this figure: 18.311.800

This is the number of tourists which visited Cataluña in 2014. (Source: Idescat based on a study by Frontur del Instituto de Estudios Turísticos (IET) ); Grafik: Fact Advertising & Consulting AG, Suiza)


In July and August of 2015 we conducted a survey of 700 wineries in Cataluña.


  • First we researched all the wineries in the autonomous region of Cataluña based on the lists published by the Regulators of the various D.O.s (AOC in France, DOC in Italy).
  • For each winery we looked for their website to find the email address.
  • This resulted in 612 wineries which we could use for our survey.
  • We sent our questionnaire to each winery, and after some reminders we ended up with 87 answers. This constitutes a return rate of 14% which is satisfactory for a survey like this.
  • Of the 254 wineries which we found to be offering winery visits 62 sent us a reply. This represents a 24% return rate from wineries which offer visits.


Considering that Catalunya is Spain's biggest tourist destination it was a surprise that most visits were undertaken by local wine lovers.

Here we should exert caution and understand, that many foreigners speak english to various degrees. So among those who enjoyed visits in English there may have been people from any different countries.

Of 699 wineries in Cataluña 254 offer visits.

The majority of the visitors to small and medium sized wineries in Cataluña are locals or Spanish. (70%).

The market of more than 18 million foreign visitors to Cataluña has hardly been exploited and is open to the EXPANSION for short term and long term benefit.

An example: Considering that 1.500.000 Germans visited Cataluña in 2014 and that Germany imports 3 million hectolitres of Spanish wine (Source: Deutsches Weininstitut, www.germanwine.de), the number of German tourists who visit wineries in Cataluña is rather low. Disclaimer: Germans may well have conducted guided visits held in English. (We should also tell you that our survey did not include the figures for the big three groups: Codorniu, Freixenet and Torres — brands which are well known in Germany.)



It is important that tourists become more aware of your winery!

We can show the millions of tourists that Spain has a lot more to offer than beaches, the pyrenees and the big cities. That many more attractions are waiting to be discovered by them — such as fabulous wineries.

And that is why after we analysed the results of our study we decided to build a second app right into the ArteBacchus Audioguide and which you can use independently from the audioguide:

The ArteBacchus InfoSystem:  The system of information about bodegas in 10 languages.



What do you prefer? Buses with tourists or individually travelling ones?

We understand from a number of talks with wineries, that visitors who come with tourist buses often do not buy much.

For you however any visit still is promotion of your brand.

And while we do not know how many tourists who come to Cataluña by airplane come as a group or as individuals, we know from statistics, that many visitrs to Cataluña travel individually.

Based on the statistics we know that more than 4.7 million tourists travel by car.

(Source: Idescat based on data from a survey conducted by Frontur del Instituto de Estudios Turísticos (IET) ); graphics: Fact Advertising & Consulting AG, Suiza)

This is why we have GoogleMaps integrated in the ArteBacchus InfoSystem.

For them the ArteBacchus InfoSystem should become the guiding tool to find you.
