The course “Marketing Internationally” aims at presenting the analysis of various tools and approaches to understand international markets. Within this framework, we were asked to conduct researches on Portuguese red wines. The aim of this paper is to present a successful strategy of penetration and develop an innovative concept of Portuguese red wine, which would lead to the improvement of Portuguese red wine image in Belgium. We decided to base our paper on a concept of sparkling red wine that we will call “Palmelita”. We have been able to write this paper on the basis of researches through syllabi and websites. We will first analyze the Belgian market and identify opportunities for our product. To do so, we will briefly describe consumption habits, distribution channels and we will highlight perspectives of growth. Secondly, we will make a short description of Portuguese wines and their characteristics. Afterwards, we will present our concept and explain the adaptation of 4P’s. And finally, we will end this paper with a critical conclusion.
