ProWein has established itself as the largest trade fair for wine and spirits in Germany and the most important international trade fair with over 60,000 visitors from 142 countries.
Bienvenido is therefore the motto again at ProWein 2023, when ICEX/Wein from Spain welcomes international trade visitors to Düsseldorf from 19 to 21 March 2023 in Hall 11 with an impressive portfolio of wine delights.
More than 300 exhibitors will represent almost all Spanish regions of origin at the ICEX/Wine from Spain joint stand - and one thing is already certain: no wish will be left unfulfilled when it comes to Spanish wine. If you want to keep track of everything, the INFOSTAND 11H17 of ICEX/Wine from Spain is the right place to be. The Wine from Spain team will be happy to advise you on exhibitors and regions.
In addition to the exhibitors' wines, we cordially invite you to our TASTING AREA 11H09 for our extensive programme of top-class Masterclasses. Here, control boards and winemakers will present news and wines to you. ICEX - Foods and Wines from Spain will celebrate its world premiere with the presentation of the English version of the new book "The Book of Sherry" by César Saldaña, President of the Control Board of the DOPs Sherry, Manzanilla and Vinagre de Jerez.
Register HERE for the Masterclasses.
