Vinexpo 2013 a massive door to the world of wine (June 16 to 20)

17th edition 1981-2013 a real booster for optimism and we need to be optimistic!

Established in 1981, by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Bordeaux, Vinexpo is now the largest and most important event for wine and spirits.

What increase! What sucess!

  • In 1981: 524 exhibitors (only 96 from outside France) 21 countries and 11 000 visitors from 50 countries,
  • En 2013: 48 858 visitors from 148 countries (growing number of visitors from outside France), 2400 exhibitors from 44 countries,
  • Outstanding Asian participation. A foreign visitor in three was Asian.

2013 a TOP organisation.  A covered parking, a real central solar system located on the fairgrounds of Vinexpo, 60.000 solar-panels for an energy capacity of 12 MWc. Spending energy to Bordeaux and shade for our cars.
Shuttles busses flowing continuously, no more traffic jams to get out of Vinexpo in the evening.

Why is Vinexpo Bordeaux so different to other wine shows?

mouton-rothschildBecause Vinexpo is unique in the World:

There is Vinexpo DAY and Vinexpo NIGHT and this is unique in the world.

Sumptuous festivals in the Chateaux of Bordeaux. Between fireworks, music concerts, fine clothes worthy of the film festival of Cannes, tasty dishes and extraordinary wines, we all have fun, we enjoyed and we do business. But the real STAR of Vinexpo is WINE

Traditionally, Vinexpo Bordeaux begins with a dinner organized the Council of Classified Growths of 1855.
This year, Chateau Mouton Rothschild opened the ball: the legendary Pauillac opened its doors for gala dinner under a starry sky only Bordeaux has to offer.
The street in front of this magnificent Château Mouton Rothschild has been converted into a park (for only 1 night) with a lawn where the most beautiful golf course becomes jealous. A building was specially dressed up for the party (600 guests) in front of the brand new cellars opening for this occasion for the first time after 3 years of renovation. The glittering party lasted until dawn.
