Vinisud, the big wine fair in Montpellier, took place earlier this year, on 18-20 February. Vinisud is about wines from southern France and other countries around the Mediterranean. If you want to meet good producers from Languedoc-Roussillon, Provence, the Rhone Valley, and more, Vinisud is an excellent wine fair, not least because many of the really small and exciting growers are also there. Without a doubt one of the most interesting wine fairs.
The big news, and something some growers are not unequivocally positive about, is that the 2019 edition of Vinisud will take place in Paris. The idea now is for the fair to be every other year in Montpellier and every other year in Paris.
The dates for the next Vinisud are 10-12 February 2019 in Paris Porte de Versailles and this will be at the same time as Vinovision, the newly launched wine fair for northern wines (Champagne, Loire, Burgundy, etc.). Paris has as yet no big professional wine fair, so maybe this is a good start.
