On the occasion of Vinexpo 2015, the Great Wine Capitals Global Network and the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce and Industry will be hosting a conference with the objective to give an overview of the various wine tourism activities and performances in the Networks member regions.

Château de Rouillac

Château de Rouillac, which formerly belonged to the famous Baron Haussmann, is an ideal venue for corporate seminars. This estate full of history features the sorts of top-level modern services expected by professionals. Participants have an outstanding view of the 17th century manor house and its stables with draught horses and race horses that train every day.

Winter is a great time to visit Bordeaux. The mild climate means the weather is rarely too cold and the local seasonal food is delicious and warming; think cepe mushrooms, duck roasted over vine clippings and delicious wine.

February 10, 2020 to February 12, 2020

Last May, Vinexpo Paris and Wine Paris announced they would be sharing the same venue in Paris, a major European capital and a strategic and easily accessible marketplace, on key dates on the buyers' agenda (10-12  February  2020).

By  holding  the  events  simultaneously,  they  can bring  together an  extensive  and representative selection of French and international wine regions.
In a  setting that  promotes sharing and engagement,  the  two  exhibitions are  encouraging discovery  and quality  business connections by  offering  visitors a  clear  range  of  products,  new  concepts  and  immersive visit itineraries  (WOW!,  WONDERFUL,  THE AVENUE, THE  NEW  WAVE,  BE  SPIRITS, DISCOVERIESBY  WINE MOSAIC...).

This joint approach undeniably enhances the appeal of the eventand encourages a wide range of national and  international  buyers to  attend (importers,  wine  merchants,  restaurateurs  and  hoteliers,  sommeliers, central  purchasing  agencies, distributors, specialised  wholesalersand  salesagents).  It  allows  producers, trading companies and brands to maximise their resources and be part ofa high-profile event in the French capital.

Le Marathon des Châteaux du Médoc is known as the world’s longest marathon. The route is the official 42,195 km distance of course, but for some it is a lot longer thanks to the many distractions on the route.
