Adegga, organisers of the Lisbon Wine Market which attracts over 1000 consumers to taste the wine of the 40 selected wine producers will be hosting the first edition of the Brussels Wine Market on 16th November at The Hotel (ex Hilton).
“Why should a trade professional attend what would normally be a consumer event?” we hear you ask… Here are seven reasons we think that you can’t miss being at Brussels Wine Market on 16th November:
1) Our 22 exhibitors from Portugal and France include some of the top names in Port winemaking that are already known on the Belgian market as well as others that are looking to develop their network of importers and distributors. Take Casa da Passarella (Dão), Casa de Mouraz (Vinho Verde), Damasceno (Setubal), Vale da Capucha e Pynga (Lisboa), Herdade do Cebolal (Setubal), Torre do Frade (Alentejo), João Barbosa (Lisboa and Alentejo) and Julia Kemper (Dão) for example – if you’re looking to develop your range, they could have just what you need.
2) New Vintages – many of our producers such as Montirius, producers of exquisite biodynamic wines from the Rhone valley will be presenting the new vintages at the Brussels Wine Market. Looking to update your wine list? This could be the place to find those new labels.
3) Belgian producers – winemakers from Chateau de Miniere and Chateau de Castigno will be on hand showcasing their wines made with Belgian hands in the Loire and Languedoc. Why not come and see how the Belgians are doing in France?
4) Champagne wine-maker Francoise Bedel, one of the few certified biodynamic producers in the region will be bringing her elegant Pinot Meunier dominant wines to the Brussels Wine Market. If you’re looking for a different sort of sparkling, look no further.
5) Niepoort Wine Experience – as a wine professional, you’re almost certainly a wine lover and any wine lover would go weak at the knees for a Port Experience Room ticket. Niepoort will be opening ten vintages ranging from 1952 to their newest releases giving Port fans and wine connoisseurs a unique insight into Portugal’s favourite export. (Tickets to the Port Wine Experience cost 35 euro – a snip considering the high price tags on these old vintages)
6) Miss Vicky Wines, new to the Belgian market, this bubbly daughter of a French vineyard owner created her own range of wines mirroring her young, elegant, fun and sexy personality. Beginning first with Beaujolais, she developed a range of wines from across France that appeal above all to a younger segment of wine drinkers. If you are looking to woo the younger wine drinkers, these labels will definitely capture the eye.
7) The Brussels Wine Market – as mentioned this is first edition of the Brussels Wine Market and is sure not to be the last. Adegga events in Lisbon attract 1000 visitors, eager to taste the wines of the 40 wine producers selected by Adegga. Exhibitors are selected for their high quality and unique approach either to wine making or wine marketing. If you think that wines you represent fit this criteria, come along and see for yourself a new approach to wine tastings.
Adegga gives members of the wine trade the chance to participate at the Brussels Wine Market for free between 11 and 12.30. Should you require a ticket, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
