Vinexpo, one of the largest global exhibitions for wine and spirit professionals from across the globe, is set to dazzle once again. This year, the event will be taking place from June 18 to 21. Mega-watt chefs Ferran Adria and Jose Andres have been tapped to make guest appearances at one of the world’s leading wine trade fairs this summer, France’s Vinexpo, where Spain will be honoured as the guest country.

Details for Vinexpo Bordeaux, one of the most important wine events on the calendar year, have been revealed for the 48,000 visitors who are expected to attend the 19th edition of the trade fair. This summer, the event will bring a dozen of the most high-powered, Michelin-starred chefs from Spain including Adria and Andres as part of its spotlight on Spanish wines.

The chefs will appear at “A Taste of Spain”, organised in partnership with Wine Spectator magazine. Along with free tastings of 116 Spanish wines, visitors will also learn about the third largest wine exporter in the world.

For the first time this year, Vinexpo will showcase 200 organic and biodynamic wineries in a single space called “World of Organic Wines” or WOW. Other highlights include panel discussions that will be themed after the wine market after Brexit, and how climate change is affecting the wine industry.
