ENGLISH WINE PRODUCERS

First time exhibiting at Prowein for English Wine Producers

Five of England’s producers will be exhibiting on the English Wine Producers stand, which will include established brands and a new producer launching their first wine: Bolney Wine Estate; Chapel Down; Gusbourne Estate; Hattingley Valley and Ridgeview Estate. Some producers already export whilst others are seeking new export opportunities. Still and sparkling wines will be available for tasting.

The EWP stand will incorporate the statement ‘This is England’ to reflect the confidence that the English wine industry now enjoys, following many years of successful sales, competition wins and media interest both in the UK and abroad.

Visitors to ProWein can meet representatives from each of the producers. EWP will also have an area within the stand to provide a welcome to the wine industry and background support to the exhibiting producers.

A broad selection of wines of different styles from the five producers will be on show, providing an exciting showcase for some of the best sparkling and still wines in the country.
“We are particularly proud to be exhibiting at ProWein this year. The line up of producers and their award-winning wines will display the confidence and professionalism that this industry represents”, commented Julia Trustram Eve, Marketing Director of English Wine Producers. “This is the first time that EWP has exhibited collectively at an overseas wine trade show – and being at one of the most important international wine exhibitions is a significant move for our producers, and will reinforce England’s place on the world wine stage.”

The English wine industry has been growing steadily in the last decade, with acreage nearly doubling in the last eight years, and volumes predicted to double by 2016. Significant medal and trophy successes in international competitions over the last 15 years have secured a reputation for quality and consistency for England’s wines.

The EWP stand will be located in Hall 6 – stand no 6 D04.
