News from Vinexpo

Created by Vinexpo 2 years ago, Vinexpo Explorer has proven itself a strong platform for bringing together interested buyers and top producers and suppliers. The model is simple: key international companies come together with producers for one different winegrowing region per year. This year’s event is taking place in Beaujolais.

Late September is a magnificent time of year in the Beaujolais region. It is not only beautiful, but also very active and open to business. 70 international buyers (from the trade and neighboring fields) representing 31 different nationalities have been handpicked from Vinexpo’s database using extensive research and word-of-mouth recommendations. 90% of buyers from the first two years of the Vinexpo Explorer indicated that the event fully met or even exceeded their expectations.

Over the course of 2 days, attendees will be introduced to 61 local producers and benefit from a broad program of tastings, masterclasses, vineyard visits, business meetings and networking moments. Air France and Abatilles are co-sponsors of this year’s event, along with the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Bourgogne-Franche-Comté regions.

Vinexpo Explorer will take place from 29 September – 1 October. For more information, please visit
