Vinexpo : Spanish-speaking wine-producing countries are well represented

Friday June 14 2013 by Vitisphere

Spain is the first wine-producing country in the world when it comes to the number of hectars of wine-producing vines. However, due the economic slump and competition from other forms of promotion, it has appeared to be less and less represented at Vinexpo over the last editions. Two years ago Spain had two pavilions, this year it has only one. Most appellations, however, have their own stands: Ribera del Duero, Rueda, Rias Baixas and Valdepeñas. Most significant spanish wineries have their stands, including Felix Solis, Marqués de Riscal, García Carrión, González Byass, Chivers, Marqués de Cáceres or Protos. Castilla-La Mancha display 14 companies, Catalonia 13, and La Rioja 11.

Spanish-speaking countries show much stronger signs of innovation and dynamism. Latin America represents the largest group of emerging producing countries, Vinexpo reflects these trends. Argentina and Chile are the leading producers and exporters of South American wine, they will be the most represented in Bordeaux. The wine facets of Mexico, Brazil and Colombia, are instead poorly represented. These countries, however, arouse great interest in view of the development of their wine imports. Portugal, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay and Venezuela are also among the 45 participating countries from 16 to 20 June 2013, at Vinexpo.

Reflecting on this trend, Vitisphere launches the spanish-speaking version of its information and newsletter (click here to find out more)
