What the Press says about us...

  • La Revue du Vin de France "The cool-climate vineyards take on Vinexpo and Bordeaux": 

"The cool-climate vineyards take on Vinexpo and Bordeaux. By launching their VinoVision trade fair in Paris, the winegrowers of the Loire, Burgundy and Champagne are taking a bold stance. Yet what an incredible idea to convince the winegrowers of the Loire, Burgundy and Champagne, along with a handful from Jura, to come together and create an exhibition dedicated to the wines of the North, these "cool-climate" wines. Whatever the case, this heralds a viticultural revolution. Paris will be hosting its first international professional trade fair dedicated to wine: VinoVision Paris. The event will take place from 12 - 14 February 2017, in Hall 4 at the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre. The objective is to attract between 600 and 700 exhibitors and 10,000 visitors-buyers. The promoters of VinoVision Paris, unified under the banner of the powerful Comexposium Group (Salon de l'Agriculture, SIAL), is clearly taking its inspiration from the success of Prowein, in Dusseldorf (…)"

  • L'Express Supplément "Anger-Saumur,  the wine business":

"VinoVision, "first major wine exhibition" in Paris. Dedicated to the "cool-climate winegrowers" (Champagne, Burgundy, Val-de-Loire and, possibly, Alsace), it is an initiative of the local decision-makers of InterLoire! The big players in winegrowing no longer made any secret of it: the "organic" and "small winegrowers" emphasis of the Salon des Vins de Loire no longer matched their international ambitions. "It is easier for foreign buyers to come to Paris. Also, they will be able to take in VinoVision and Vinisud, in Montpellier, in the same week," explains Philippe Porche, President of Vins de Saumur."

  • Terre de Vins "VinoVision: cool-climate wines will have their own professional trade fair":

"In February 2017, Hall 4 of the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre in Paris will host the first edition of VinoVision, the first international trade fair exclusively dedicated to cool-climate wines (Loire, Burgundy, Champagne). 650 exhibitors are expected.

We were already familiar with Vinisud, the event dedicated to Mediterranean wines, which now takes place annually at the Parc Expo, Montpellier. From next year, cool-climate wines will also have their own event, reserved for professionals. The Interprofessional Bodies for the Wines of Val de Loire, Centre-Loire & Burgundy and the SGV (General syndicate of winegrowers) of Champagne have joined forces with Comexposium (the specialist in events organisation) to create VinoVision Paris, the first Professional Exhibition for Cool-Climate Wines. The first edition of this event, which is intended to be held annually, will take place from 12 - 14 February 2017 in Hall 4 of the Porte de Versailles exhibition centre, on 15,000 m² of floor space.(…)"
