Bonjour ProWein. It still feels like the first day!
Bonjour ProWein. It still feels like the first day!
France is proud to be the partner country for the 25th anniversary of the world’s largest wine fair. We love sharing our savoir-faire. We love sharing these special moments with you. Just like we have done for the last 25 years, and for many more to come.
THERE IS NOTHING LIKE A MOMENT WITH YOU
A promotional campaign, organized by Business France*, with all its regional and inter-professional partners, highlights the diversity of the know-how and terroirs of the country. It celebrates the unique relationship that has, for the last 25 years, united French exporters, who are on a mission to conquer international markets, and trade professionals who have been visiting the show in ever-increasing numbers.
In total, ProWein welcomes 1,600 French exhibitors, most of whom are located in the French Pavilions in four halls 7, 11, 12 and 13 covering more than 6,500 sq m.
Meet us at the France booth (hall 11 stand A160) to explore the French diversity!
"For the first time, the entire French industry has chosen to communicate with one voice under the Made in France Made with Love banner - this is a huge step forward and a unique opportunity to capture the attention and interest of international visitors," said Christophe Monnier, Director of the Agri-Food Department of Business France.
Discover a sample of 100 French wines & spirits selected during an earlier tasting by a European jury jointly recruited by Weinwirtschaft and Business France at the Showroom #BonjourProWein (Hall 11 booth A159). The opportunity for professionals to discover "a representative selection of the latest vintages" said Benjamin Roffet, Best Sommelier of France 2010 / Best Craftsman of France Sommellerie 2011, member of the jury, and who concluded "French know-how will shine for ProWein's 25th anniversary!”.
