Top wine fairs of 2014

MILLÉSIME BIO, 27-29 January 2013, Exhibition Center Montpellier, France

millesime-bioThis year’s exhibition marks the 21st anniversary of Millésime Bio, which was set up by a group of organic winemakers in Languedoc-Roussillon. With a focus on central and southern Europe, the fair will feature some 800 organic producers from France, South Africa, the US, Germany, Austria, Chile, Egypt, Italy, Portugal, New Zealand, Switzerland, Slovenia, Bulgaria and Hungary – up from the 700 producers who exhibited last year.

A working knowledge of French is recommended for those thinking of attending talks during the fair, such as a round table organised by the French “Bio Agency” on European viticulture and lectures on the organic wine market.

New for this year will be a third exhibition hall creating an additional 60 tasting booths, along with a wine bar and the “Challenge Millésime Bio” medallists bar. Millésime Bio has also extended its opening hours until 8.30pm on Monday 27 January with an organic beer tasting taking place in the exhibition halls from 6.30pm.

    Good list of fairs. But I can assure you from personal experience that Vinitaly does NOT have 20% of visitors coming from North America, that’s just marketing talk. The vast majority are Italians, with some 30% from abroad.
