Millésime Bio, which closed on 30 January, welcomed 6,200 visitors over the three-day event, a 10% increase in attendance compared to the previous show. The French came in greater numbers this year, accounting for 78% of visitors compared to 75% last year. “This growth clearly illustrates the vitality of the organic wine market, which is particularly buoyant in France”, said Sudvinbio chair Patrick Guiraud.

In terms of exhibitors, the results seem fairly positive, even if some feel that there is a certain amount of dispersion due to the increase in exhibition area, with an additional hall opened this year to host 130 more winegrowers. Etienne and Martine Sipp from Domaine Louis Sipp in Ribeauvillé in Alsace are regular Millésime Bio attendees having taken part for 10 years. “This year, we had few new contacts. It was mainly our customers who came. Some of them came for the three days with all their staff, because it is a very professional show. But in terms of new contacts, we went away disappointed. It seems that the fringe shows attract visitors who no longer have time to come to Millésime Bio”.
