For the first six months of every second year, whispers circulate around the wine community of Bordeaux—will you be going to Vinexpo? Winemakers and merchants begin preparing for this sizable professional event weeks and sometimes months in advance. This year Vinexpo Bordeaux kicks off on the 18th of June and lasts through the 21st.

Close to 50,000 visitors from 150 countries will mingle, swirl, taste, dine, attend conferences and swap business cards within 15 covered acres (6 hectares) where more than 2,300 exhibitors—many in custom, sumptuous booths—will be available to answer questions and let visitors sample their wares.

Whether you want to sample 18 different wines from Serbia, listen to the Alibaba Group explain how big data is transforming wine business opportunities, learn from Napa Valley winemakers about their ‘environmental sustainability’ program or have a copy of a book titled Le Vin Snob signed by its author—these four days at Vinexpo include a wide and eclectic range of topics and workshops to keep visitors relentlessly engaged.
