Top wine and spirit trade fairs of 2019

Wine Paris, France

11-13 February

This year, for the first time, two established wine trade shows will join forces in Paris, with ViniSud and VinoVision taking place under the banner of Wine Paris.

While ViniSud takes in the wines of southern France, hailing from its Mediterranean coast, VinoVision, founded in 2017, was engineered to showcase the cool climate AOC wines of Northern France, including producers from Alsace, Beaujolais, Burgundy, Champagne, Jura, the Loire and Savoie.

As well as showcasing the great variety of French wine, regions, varieties, soils and viticulture, the aim of Comexposium, the exhibition organiser behind Vinisud and VinoVision, is to create a “major international wine event in Paris,” making use of the city’s accessibility, facilities and position as a business and gastronomic hub.

Pascale Ferranti, managing director of Wine Paris, said: “Thanks to Wine Paris, over just three days, buyers will not only be able to taste the outstanding 2018 vintage, but also discover some real gems and get a handle on an extensive range of wines from different regions around the world. February is an ideal buying time and Wine Paris is positioning itself as the first major international business event of the year for wine.”

So far, more than 1,300 exhibitors have signed up and upwards of 25,000 visitors are expected to attend. The show will become a permanent fixture in Paris, and is already slated to return in 2020.
