Some Facts

What are you waiting to do business?

The WBWE is the forum where the most important business transactions of each harvest are decided. A not-to-be-missed event for those producers, importers, brokers, purchasing managers… Ultimately, for all those professionals from the sector who would like to discover the global trends that will define each harvest in order not to be left out.

Each year the bulk wine market is increasingly growing; nowadays, 40% of the wine exported at a global scale is bulk. This figure amounts to more than 3,000 million euros. At the WBWE, organic wines, still wines, sparkling, or wines with or without a designation of origin or a PGI can be found, but also distilled beverages, spirits and liquors, hence widening the business possibilities for the fair’s attendees.

250 exhibitors and 6,500 professionals

 

ATTENDING PRODUCER COUNTRIES

The commitment of the World Bulk Wine Exhibition is to ensure that every exhibitor that participates with its own variety of quality bulk wine will achieve the best international showcase for their own products. This is made possible thanks to our job of attracting purchasers from all over the world. WBWE is an event of strategic importance not only due to the dates, the place or the capacity of bringing international business together, but also due to its 360-degree vision of what the bulk wine industry has to offer.

The WBWE according to the industry’s professionals:

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.

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.

Tom Seaver

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.

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 makes the event a unique occasion to taste wines coming from all over the world.

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.

Anita Oberholster
Anita Oberholster Extension Specialist in Enology based at the Department of Viticulture & Enology at the University of California in Davis

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.
