Paris’ first major professional wine fair, Wine Paris, took place on 11-13 February. Many consider it about time that the French capital hosts a large wine fair. Wine Paris is a merger of Wine Vision and Vinisud. Wine Vision is a fair that made its debut in Paris in February 2018 with exhibitors from France’s so-called “cool climates”, such as Champagne, Burgundy, Loire and Alsace.
Since 1994, Vinisud has been a very popular trade show in Montpellier with producers from southern France and the whole of the Mediterranean basin.
In other words, Wine Paris covers the whole of France and quite a bit international.
Many positive voices were heard during the three days of Wine Paris, including a Burgundy producer who chose to come to Paris instead of going to Prowein, the major competitor in Düsseldorf. And who also thought she made better contacts in Paris. Other exhibitors were less happy, especially with the number of visitors, but it is always difficult to draw conclusions after the first year.
In any case, optimism reins for 2020 when Wine Paris takes place February 10-12. Put it in your agenda!
