ProWein 2017 – To Another Great Year.
Global Wines & More has recently visited the ProWein fair, the world’s leading trade fair for wine and spirits that was held in Düsseldorf, Germany. It was a great opportunity for us to discover excellent wines, taste and select them for our wine-loving customers.
Very much in line with its slogan “To Another Great Year” ProWein from 19 to 21 March 2017. There were over 6,500 exhibitors from more than 60 countries. Half the exhibitors came from Italy and France, followed by Germany, the New World, Austria, Spain and Portugal. The focus was on the new wines from all relevant winegrowing regions of the world supplemented. There was also the celebrity touch with Sting representing his Il Palagio winery from Tuscany.
We were so impressed by both number of visitors and participating wineries which have been continuously grown year after year.
All of the exhibitors were very friendly and happy to tell us the story of their wines, how they are produced and many other interesting stories about their lives which have made even more impression to us.
We are looking forward to next year’s event!
