The now well-known wine fair for organic wines, Millésime Bio, will take place on 27-29 January 2020 in Montpellier. All exhibitors must be organically certified. Being under conversion is no longer enough. There are now far too many producers who want to exhibit. The number of exhibitors – 1200 in 2020 – is increasing every year. The show’s growth is a good illustration of the continued popularity and increasing demand of organic wines.
Today, 10% of the French wine area is organic, a threefold increase between 2007 and 2017. The Occitanie region, which includes Languedoc-Roussillon and the South West, has 37% of the total, which means 34,000 organic hectares, according to organizers. The interest in converting to organic shows no signs of slowing down, nor in the other two major wine countries, Italy and Spain.
