Vinisud is one of the big wine shows. It is primarily focused on the professional visitor / wine buyer. It is a very interesting wine show, not least because there are plenty of small producers, much more than e.g. at a grand show like Vinexpo. One of the reasons is that it is relatively cheap to have a stand so smaller producer can afford it. They also focus on the wine regions around the Mediterranean, where there are many small / mid-size and interesting producers today. The Languedoc-Roussillon has the largest number of exhibitors, not surprising since it takes place in that region. But also for example the Rhône Valley as well as some other countries around the Mediterranean are well represented.
This year there will even be an exhibitor from Greece. In spite of “the crisis” the numbers point towards at least as many exhibitors as last time. It’s certainly an interesting show for those who are looking to establish new contacts with producers. Well worth visiting if you’re interested in this type of wines. And who’s not? BKWine will certainly be there! Facts: 22-24 February 2010 in Montpellier.
