THE WORLD-LEADING FAIR IN BULK WINE TRADE
An event that gathers, during only two days, 75% of the bulk wine supply that is exported worldwide.
In 2019, the WBWE celebrates 11 years attracting the entire international wine industry to Amsterdam with the very same objective: TO DO BUSINESS.
250 producers from 22 countries and 6,500 visitors from 60 countries
The timing of this fair has been very well chosen because it takes place just after harvesting and we can learn about the novelties of the latest harvest; we can get an image of the qualities and learn about the pricing of the harvest and even more now that the situation is a little bit more complicated, I feel it is very important to be present and be aware of the news.

I visited the Silent Tasting Room and I tasted many different wines, it’s truly exceptional to be able to taste so many wines, varieties and blends from so many different countries; I was surprised at the quality. For any professional looking for bulk wine, this is the perfect place to come and find the best solution for your label. .

The WBWE represents a crucial trade fair for the bulk wine industry and provides a major opportunity for the producers to display their products. Moreover, it gives participants the possibility to taste wines coming from different territories just a few months after harvesting.

This is the first seminar I’m aware of that focuses on the art of coupage, and it is an extremely original and important approach because when you leave university, nobody has explained this to you and you have to learn it by yourself. The Art of Blending is an amazing opportunity for all those professionals who are involved in blending wine.

I came to the WBWE looking for wines to buy and that I can also sell. There is a wonderful atmosphere and it’s the perfect environment to catch up with a lot of old friends from the sector and establish new and valuable contacts.
In my opinion, the WBWE is the best place to do businesses. Approximately 30% of the year’s business comes from the connections that I make during this fair.
