What exhibitors say....

" ProWein is the most important trade fair for us, because importers from all over the world are here. They come well prepared, which makes the three trade fair days really effective. We also use them to detect new trends."

Mireia Prim, Brand Ambassador, Torres/Spanien

Along the Route USA

"Route USA" that means, that exhibitors with this sign are very interested in getting on the market of the USA. Johannes Deppisch, private winery and the exhibitor Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler told us, what they expect being a part of "Route USA".

Celebrities at the ProWein

The handball star Stefan Kretzschmar by now is more of a businessman than an athlete – and as an entrepreneur, he is also at the ProWein. This is because of his function as a brand ambassador for a Tequila. The actor from the show Tatort Andreas Hoppe's position is a bit more general – in support of regional and ecological products. But also in support of wine. 

Same but different

Same but different - that is the only connection between the 10 very different exhibitors in this special area. We learned more about the company Bargylus and wine of Syria, wooden wine of the company San Vigilio and blue wine produced by Gik Blue Wine.

New: Organic Lounge

New this year at ProWein: The Organic Lounge. Demeter, Bioland e.V. and Ecovin started this project with the special and actual theme. We talked to exhibitors like Domaine Zind-Humbrecht and Cataldo Calabretta Viticoltore about organic wine.

Champagne at ProWein 2016

Champagne plays a major roll at the ProWein 2016. There is a special area, the Champagne Lounge, for exhibitors of the region Champagne. But there are also other interesting companies which present champagne of different countries. Emily Whigham talked to some of the important exhibitors.

Gourmet vs. Rocker - Two different kinds of good wine

Slowly but surely beer is being replaced by wine even in the beer heartlands of Germany. This means that not only so-called fancy dinners call for red, rosé or white wines, but also more informal occasions are suitable. Possibly also in other circles. We took a look at two different paths leading to wine – gourmet vs. rocker.

Tradition or Revolution – The Vinters At The ProWein

Wine is a craft – with many traditions. From the right choice of vine to the vintage all the way to the maturation of the fine wine – a lot of things have to be just like they have been for centuries. Or do they? A man from Hong Kong called the Flying Winemaker is turning the industry upside down. Revolution or tradition – we did the test.
"ProWein is my first priority in planning out my annual travel schedule. Three days at ProWein can be as productive as a week visiting producers in wine countries... I can‘t think of another wine
event where the world‘s wine professionals can make such good use of their time!"
