Iwan Merkulow from Russia is interested in German wine. “I made appointments with six different wine traders here at the trade fair. I think that ProWine is the best place to go to when it comes to wine business since everybody gathers in Düsseldorf. The wine market in Russia is growing, it had a plus of 15 percent last year. No surprise to me – wine tastes much better than vodka.”

Lisa Veit, Samira Schmidt and Stefanie König are students of wine business administration with emphasis in marketing. “We come here every year to get an overview on innovations in stand design, product design and new wine trends. We have noticed that there is a growing market for wine-based mix drinks in aluminum bottles. It is great to get so many information about new trends in international lectures and workshops that are given here! And after a busy day, we never miss the parties of “ProWein goes City”, where you can meet people in a more relaxed atmosphere!”

Helen Hall and Rebecca Bramwell are here to find wines from Italy for hotels and restaurants in the UK. “Our focus are DOC wines from the region of Gavi.

Antje Chmielecki from Germany visits ProWein every year since the beginning and owns a wine store. “I am here to test follow-up generations of the vintage wines I have in my store in Bonn as well as novelties and innovations. This is hard work, because I test 70 to 100 wines per day. But it is also a great pleasure! For me, it is important to offer my customer wines of good price-performance ratio. A lot of customers shop in supermarkets and just don’t know what they are actually buying anymore. I want to raise their awareness for this extraordinary product.”
