Why Your Visit Is Worth It
In comparison to other wine fairs, KölnWein is considerably smaller, but that’s its strength. There is a lovely atmosphere that puts people in the mood to taste wine and make purchases. You connect with both bigger buyers and the public. As a result, you receive direct feedback from end consumers. The event is a great, low-cost opportunity to penetrate the German market. Here are a few of the key numbers:
- 900 wines available for tastings
- 140 exhibitors in total
- 1900 square metres of exhibition space available.
KölnWein takes place every single year in early April and editions are put together in the historic Gürzenich building. This festival fall was constructed in the Middle Ages as a place for festivities and celebrations, which makes it the perfect venue for a wine fair. The hall sits in the heart of the Old Town and puts visitors in high spirits when they attend. It all translates into direct sales and valuable contacts for everyone involved.
The wine fair is where wine growers showcase their new vintages for the summer and give visitors detailed information on their products. In addition to the red and white wines, you’ll see a variety of olive oils, professional literature, accessories, and technology on display. It’s not a wine fair without multiple wine tastings. In addition, each year visitors can learn a little about wine culture. In 2021, the focus was on the perfect wines to pair with asparagus!
