The producers of Occitanie Pyrénées-Mediterranean, France’s leading wine region, deserve a dedicated professional event rooted in the region.

A trade show that is part of the development of an export business strategy and an offer of wine tourism that wants to be closer to the consumer. This year a delegation of importers from the Asia-Pacific will be invited, adding value to and the exhibitors wine tourism offer will be valued. Meetings will be held Monday, April 27 and Tuesday, April 28, 2020 at the Montpellier Exhibition Park!

“The Mediterranean is the cradle of wine. Despite its rich history, the region has never been more exciting than today. A new generation of growers are creating outstanding wines from historical vineyards where the sun baked and crooked old vines give an unparalleled quality and character.” Andreas Larsson.
A great tasting of Mediterranean wines from all countries is organized. This tasting is open to all Mediterranean producers even if they are not exhibitors. The results will be announced when the show opens. 4 Master Classes are also on the program for the two days of the fair, essentially focusing on the organoleptic differences of the same grape depending on its wine region of origin.
