Vinexpo Hong Kong, an unmissable trade event
The only truly international wines and spirits event in Asia, Vinexpo Hong Kong has become one of the leading trade events to map the trends and developments across all Asian markets.
France remains the number one wine supplier to Asian countries with 27.24 million cases imported in 2014, so understandably has a strong presence at the show: it will occupy the whole of Level 3, an impressive 43% of the total exhibition area. The full range of France’s wine output will be represented through all its appellations, from Bourgogne to the Loire region, from Bordeaux to Provence, via Alsace and the Champagne region. Visitors will also notice stands showcasing French spirits such as Cognac and Armagnac.
Italy is the world’s biggest exporter, yet only fifth to Asia, so this year it will enjoy special status as guest of honour. Italy’s main players in wine production are seizing this opportunity to come and present the full range of Italian wines and spirits. Buyers will be able to meet Italian wine producers, to taste indigenous grape varieties, to discover italian wine regions and to taste wines and spirits from this amazing country.
There will be even more New World wines at Vinexpo Hong Kong 2016: this segment is steadily increasing its market share in Asia. The major Californian, Australian and South American brands will be with us once again, alongside the rising stars from New York, Oregon, Washington State, New Zealand, Bulgaria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and even Mauritius.
China is represented by an increasing number of producers. Already the world’s 8th biggest grape producer, China will be showcasing a selection of its wines destined for the export market.
