In this article we want to make a little summary of our experience as exhibitors of Vinexpo Bordeaux 2019. It was a real pleasure having our stand and sharing the same place as the big brands of all over the world.
VINEXPO BORDEAUX 2019 IN FIGURES.
The official data of Vinexpo Bordaux 2019 were: 50.400 m2 of pavilion, 2.000 exhibitors and 40.000 professional visitors of 150 different countries, and YES!!! We were there as exhibitors for 4 days long, more than 10 hours each day sharing impressions about our liqueurs, gins and learning about wines, sake, champagne and a lot of other drinks. It was impossible to taste everything. Vinexpo is one of the 3 most important fairs in the world of the spirits and wines.
Once you are there, the first immpression is that you are in a huge city under the same roof with small and big brands of all over the world. There are even stands representing different countries, those have little stands in them. So you can find big stands of wine of Argentina, Chile, Spain, France, Germany and New Zealand, etc. It is also very common stands of different denominations of origin or regional grouping. The stand of Spanish wines were competing with the best wines, and as you know, Spain is present all over the world with its wines, food and everything that Spanish gastronomic culture entails.
We were really excited being very close to the big stand of winemakers of D:O Toro (Zamora), and with their president Felipe Nalda, who we know for more than 15 years and Rubén Gil Alfageme, both did a great job.
In each of those big stands, there are aprox. 15 or 20 winemakers with different wines, ready to give you a sample of their excellent wines and other products, explaining with all detail all the culture of their country and region. It´s very common that the winemakers offer you some typical food to share with wine. In our case, it´s not so different. We shared a big stand with big winemakers of Castilla and Leon and we were the only one who had black legged ham cutter, so you can already imagine what expectation this caused.
