Millésime Bio, Montpellier, France, 25-27 January

NL1402E29-13Founded in 1993 by winemakers of the Sudvinbio trade association, Millésime Bio is the world’s biggest trade fair dedicated to organic wines.

The 2016 show will mark its 22nd instalment, with last year’s event attracting nearly 5,000 visitors and 800 exhibitors from countries including Austria, Argentina, Bulgaria, Chile, France, Hungary and Germany. For 2016, organisers have appointed Ecocert, one of the world’s largest organic certification organisations, to ensure that all wines conform to EU organic regulations.

All stands provided at the show are identical, with the aim of reducing the financial advantage of larger producers able to fund more elaborate stands over smaller producers. Other features of this trade-only event include a self-pour tasting area and schedule of seminars discussing global organic wine trends.

The event will also host the Challenge Millésime Bio competition, now in its ninth year, held to highlight and promote quality organic wines. All the medal-winning wines will be available to taste throughout the three-day event in the Challenge Millésime Bio tasting area.
