Once again in 2017 ProWein impressively proved it is the world’s most important business platform for the international wine and spirits sector. Over 6,500 exhibitors from more than 60 nations – more than ever before – were presented at ProWein in Düsseldorf from 19 to 21 March. Half the exhibitors came from Italy (1,600) and France (1,500), followed by Germany (1,000), the New World (600), Austria, Spain and Portugal.
In focus were the new wines from all relevant winegrowing regions of this world supplemented by 300 spirits specialities. Probably the most famous exhibitor was Sting with his Il Palagio winery from Tuscany. The superstar could not resist the opportunity to come to ProWein in person and present his wines with his wife Trudie Styler.
