The current generation of Indians is one that’s come to appreciate the wine and spirits space. And definitely one that’s open to both classics and experimental concoctions alike! 

It’s exciting times for wine connoisseurs in Mumbai, with the Vinexpo India all set to take place at The Leela from 18-20th August. Following their successful debut in Delhi, this is the second edition of the leading global wine and spirits exhibition in India.

Essentially a B2B trade show, Vinexpo India is where wine and spirit enthusiasts get to learn, network with key industry players, find and explore the market, and market their brands all under one roof. All you need to do to attend the three-day, free event is be a buyer/distributor/retailer, and be above 25 years of age.

There are over 2000 people expected, including leading Indian and international wine and spirits manufacturers and companies. So from Sula Wines, Agriment Italy, John Distilleries, Fratelli Wines, to Matia Antonia, there are several key players to interact with. Swiss Luxury Spirits Producer SWISSVÄL is also expected to showcase the luxury range of Alpine Gin, Single Malt Whisky and an interesting hot and spicy Drink-Williams with bird’s eye chilli.

Rajeev Samant, Founder and CEO of Sula Vineyards is slated to deliver the keynote address at Vinexpo India and set the ball rolling for 14 record Masterclasses to be held. These masterclasses also have a good number of wineries directly participating from Italy, Bordeaux and the US with importers like Sonarys, Aspri, VBev, and The Wine Park raring to show their wares- complete with display and tasting.

Notable sessions you can’t afford to miss include ones with Roland Coiffe & Associés, wine merchants from Bordeaux. The brand is bringing a range of wines from Bordeaux and different parts of France. 

There’s also Mattia Antonio Cianca, Italy’s Best Sommelier for the year 2019. Together with Amrita Singh in Bordeaux, she’s all set to present an eclectic range of Italian wines from 10 wineries. 

And then, of course, comes the most anticipated Vinexpo India masterclass on Women in Wine. Moderated by MissMalini, one of the best-known TV and Blogging community members, it’s a discussion on the journey of women in the Indian wine industry and the challenges faced.

“After a successful first edition of Vinexpo in New Delhi, we are happy to be back in Mumbai now. India offers a large potential new market for all wine producers of the world. Its rising middle class, rising interest in wine makes it the perfect place for wine exporters to meet,” says Rodolphe Lameyse, CEO of Vinexposium.

Still wine has become the dominant category in recent years and the on-trade remains the key sales channel for wine. “India is a great market for Wine and Spirits,” says Rajan Sharma, Managing Director at InterAds, a reputed organiser for international trade events. “While spirits and beer dominate the Indian market, the usher of a new generation of consumers and brands entering the market offers growing opportunities for wine. We are looking at growing a dynamic network for Vinexpo and all its participants,” he adds.

The event is organized by Vinexposium, the world’s leading organiser of wine and spirits gatherings. With a portfolio of iconic, recognized events and a digital offer available all year round in association with Inter Ads Exhibitions, they’re India’s leading and reputed organiser of international trade exhibitions and conferences in the country.
