Why You Should be Going to Prowein

The First Event for the Wine Professional

Bio Wines

If you're interested in biodynamic certification, or simply want to explore a wide selection of organic, natural, and biodynamic wines there was a balcony set up for these producers and the governing organizations. Next year's ProWein will be held in a different set of halls and I expect the selection of producers pouring under the organic banner will be much larger, and not quite so isolated. Though as you can see from this picture, that didn't keep people from coming for a visit.

  • I assumed it was in Germany. it is. Dusseldorf, this year and maybe every year. It looks incredibly organized which helps decrease how overwhelming it probably really is!

    It's incredibly well organized and in spite of hosting 48000 visitors (and nearly 5000 exhibitors) this year, it never felt overly busy or stressful. My only problem was that the relaxed pace kept me from visiting even a 10th of what I had on my schedule! Champagne lounge not to be missed... Do note, however, that this is a trade event only and they are quite strict on enforcing that... It's part of why it is so good!

    Excellent resume! And, as an exhibitor in the organic wine section, I do confirm we were a bit (quite a bit!) isolated... Hopefully next year the location will be better, as you say!

    Walking for AN HOUR OR TWO between pavilions??? I can see 10 minutes, but are the pavilions really that far apart? If so, I'll return to Vinitaly where it's usually just a 20-meter walk between buildings..... usually in a downpour......

    Ha! Sorry that is cumulative as you walk from seminar to appointment, back to someone you only noticed in passing, to lunch, to the Champagne lounge. It makes for a busy, and active day.
