Vinexpo is consolidating its offering as an international meeting place for market players, welcoming 15% new exhibitors and 3 new countries: Sweden, Turkey and Vietnam. Smaller-scale producers will also be catered for, for example in the AANA (Nouvelle-Aquitaine Food Agency) area, and in the pavilion created by Vinexpo to make the show more accessible to smaller entities.
Organic and biodynamic wines and spirits from around the world will be showcased at WOW! World of Organic Wines and will feature 150 producers from 10 countries. This event within the event benefits from the worldwide appeal of Vinexpo Bordeaux and will attract buyers seeking wines with the organic or biodynamic label.
