The International Wine Fair War in Montpellier

Contributor blog post by Liz Gabay:

Montpellier has the good fortune to be home to two international wine trade fairs: Vinisud and Millésime Bio. Such fairs are big business, with many producers and buyers coming, often from far away to meet under one roof. With many producers present, buyers can taste many wines quickly and negotiate with producers directly.

…Continue reading here for this expert’s perspective on these two wine events that were held in January 2017. According to our Master of Wine, the two exhibitions have had different focuses until this past year, when the timing of the two shows almost overlapped. Interesting reading and it will be curious to see how it plays out in the future.

I first started coming to Provence regularly in the mid-1980s when, with my family, we invested in a small cottage in the central Var. I started to specialise in the wines of the area, selling them in the UK – way before Provencal rosé became fashionable. A 10 year pause in the 1990s while I worked at the Master of Wine degree, got married and had my two children before we decided to make a move to France full time. Based to the north of the wine region of Bellet and Nice since 2002, I write about the wines of south east France and Liguria (as well as other countries). I particularly enjoy the cultural and historical background to wine and some of the more obscure facts.
