Vinisud, the big wine fair with Mediterranean profile, will open its doors on 29th of January 2017. Since its debut in 1994 the fair has been held every second year in Montpellier. Now, however, it is becoming an annual event. Around 1000 wine producers will be present in 2017. These come mainly from the southern French wine regions but also from Italy, Spain and other Mediterranean countries. Over 20 000 visitors are expected, including 6,000 from abroad.
The number of exhibitors and visitors expected are fewer than the 2016 edition. Perhaps this is a natural consequence of the fair now being annual. Vinisud 2017 compensates by paying special attention to current trends, such as the sparkling Mediterranean wines which currently have great success on the export market. It will give young wine growers that have recently started their careers a boost in a special stand dedicated to them. Also wine tourism and bag in box will have their own stands.
Vinisud, 29-31 Januari, 2017 in Montpellier (for professionals only).
