German sparkling wines, Sekt, the orange wine movement and Generation Riesling will all be key themes of the German Wine Institute’s stand at Vinexpo.
Ten producers from different German winegrowing regions will join the DWI and the German Ministry of Food and Agriculture on their joint stand.
There will also be a separate stand just to showcase the wines being made by some of the country’s most cutting edge winemakers as part of its Generation Riesling initiative that looks to bring new life to arguably the country’s biggest wine export. Klara Zehnder, a Wines of Germany ambassador, known as the ‘German wine Princess’ will also be on hand to talk through the wines and how these rising stars of German wine are looking to change its international image.
The DWI stand will host a series of seminars each day covering different themes and topics. These include: License to Sparkle – German Premium Sekt; The Organic and Orange Movement in Germany; Germany’s Got Talent; Generation Riesling; Crisp and Light – Consumer‘s Delight; and Riesling, Icewine & Co – Beware Fruit Bombs.
There will also be a ‘Happy Hour’ at the end of each day where visitors can come and enjoy a range of snacks and sparkling Winzersekt in the lounge of the sharedstand.
2019 marks the 16th consecutive fair that the DWI has supported Vinexpo Bordeaux.
