Wine Fairs

French Wine Growers’ Fair in London 21-23 November

130 ”authentic” and “traditional” French winegrowers will exhibit on the First French Winegrowers Fair in London on November 21-23. It takes place at the Barbican Exhibition Centre in central London. You pay a small entrance fee (£10) and then you can taste as much as you like of the more than 500 wines that are presented. There will also be tastings, a special section on organic wines and on French wines made by Brits and more. You can also buy wines on-site (trolleys are provided) or have them delivered to your home. Sounds like an entertaining event. Especially the authentic winegrower!

Millesime Bio – organic wine fair, 26-28 January

Millesime bio is the annual wine faire dedicated to organic wines (need we add once again that it should be read “wine produced from organically grown grapes”. There are no such thing, strictly speaking, as “organic wine”). The next edition (the 16th!) takes place on January 26-28, 2009. This time it will be in Montpellier, making it easier to access for long distance visitors. Perhaps they are also expecting larger crowds ‘organic’ being much the rage these days.

WineMeetings Cannes in February

A little while ago we talked about the WineMeetings Cannes event. It is a meeting place for buyers and negociants. Their new web site is now online:

Provence and Rhône wine fair, Blue Wine Expo.

Blue Wine Expo is a professional wine fair that presents 120 independent winegrowers (‘vignerons indépendants’) to buyers, importers and the restaurant trade. A good occasion to make new contacts with winemakers from Provence and the southern Rhône valley. In Marseille on January 26-27. More info
