My colleagues and me are looking for good wines and if they are also organic, it is perfect, but organic is not our focus. It is the whole range of good wines. For this reason the trade fair is perfect.“
Marcin Taras, employee, Adega, Poland: „For me it is the first ProWein in Düsseldorf and I´m looking for good wines and food. So what does good wine mean? That is different for everyone.

Kathleen Moore, Owner and Sommelier, K Cellars, Canada: „You can see wines from all over the world here, that is great,“ she told impressed. It is the second time that she visits the trade fair. For her the mix of appointments, impressions and discovering international wines of countries like Australia, South Africa, Chile and France without going by plane and spend a lot of time, is why she will come back next year.
