Sudvinbio raises a glass to successful 2014 organic-wine event

Aurore Bernard - 18-mars-2014 12:11:25

Sudvinbio, the organizer of the Millésime Bio 2014 trade show, has described this year’s event as an outstanding success, with over 4,200 visitors. Millésime Bio 2014 was held from 27 to 29 January 2014, in Montpellier (France). Thanks to an array of conferences and wine-tasting events, it represents a unique professional forum for the organic-wine market and the trade. Sudvinbio, the organizer of Millésime Bio, one of the foremost international events in organic winegrowing, has described this year’s event as an outstanding success, thanks to the record number of visitors. Indeed, visitor numbers increased year on year (from 4,160 in 2013 to over 4,240 in 2014), with 20% of visitors coming from outside France. Visitors to the trade show represented a total of 20 nationalities. The majority of visitors came from the Benelux countries (19.60%), followed by Scandinavia (15.60%), Germany (14%), North America (11%) and, finally, Asia (6.80%). Exhibitor numbers also rose – from 689 in 2013 to 787 in 2014 – with France, Italy and Spain the most represented countries. However, attendance from a number of other nations was also strong, with winegrowers based in countries such as Germany, Portugal and, for the first time, Slovenia, exhibiting at the trade fair. Millésime Bio was held at the Exhibition Centre, in the city of Montpellier (Southern France), from 27 to 29 January of this year. Millésime Bio is a unique concept that brings together organic wines from a variety of French regions and from many countries outside France. The trade show provides an important platform for dialogue and exploration through conferences, and the increase in visitor/exhibitor numbers at this year’s event is confirmation that Millésime Bio has become established as the trade event of reference for the organic-wine sector. The organic-wine market is steadily increasing in overall importance, with a 6% rise in the size of the land area given over to organic-wine production in France between 2011 and 2012. Over a four-year period, the surface area devoted to organic winegrowing in France has almost tripled. The three leading French regions are Languedoc-Roussillon (51,385 acres, up 4% in one year), Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (36,781 acres, up 8%), and Aquitaine (24,097 acres, up 3%). Worldwide, France is in second place — behind Spain and ahead of Italy — in terms of the size of its organic-winegrowing sector. According to a consumer survey carried out in France in 2013 by French market-research company IPSOS, one in three people polled indicated regularly or occasionally drinking organic wine. The industry turnover in 2012 stood at €413 million overall (up 15%, year on year). Export sales — to countries such as Germany, Japan and the USA, among others — have risen and, at €58 million in value, now represent 19% of the turnover of the organic-food-and-drink sector. The prime distribution channel for organic wine is direct sales (36%), followed by retail outlets specializing in organic products (27%), mass-retail food stores (19%) and, finally, small shops (17%). About Sudvinbio Sudvinbio was formed in 1991 by organic winegrowers in order to collectively promote their wines. Formerly called the Inter-professional Association for Organic Wine from Languedoc-Roussillon (AIVB-LR), it was renamed Sudvinbio in 2012. Today, Sudvinbio is held in high regard by industry professionals and by institutional players as an active and dynamic association which, through its actions, has widely contributed to enhancing the profile of organic wines from Languedoc-Roussillon, and that of the organic-wine sector in general. The next Millésime Bio trade show will be held from 26 to 28 January 2015 at the Exhibition Centre, in Montpellier (Southern France).

Sudvinbio, the organizer of the trade show, has increased capacity with the addition of an extra hall, in order to welcome over 4,000 industry professionals and 800 exhibitors. Millésime Bio focuses on wine-tasting and the trade; thanks to an array of conferences, it constitutes a unique professional forum for the organic-wine market.   Millésime Bio, one of the foremost international events in organic winegrowing, is a unique concept that brings together organic wines from a variety of French regions and from many countries outside France. The trade show provides a platform for dialogue and exploration through conferences, and thanks to its open wine-tasting areas. The opening of a third exhibition hall for the 2014 event, to be held in Montpellier in late January of next year, will allow for more exhibitors and will create optimum conditions for wine-tasting.   The 2013 event welcomed 689 exhibitors from 11 countries, which equated to a 5% rise in the number of producers and traders, as compared to 2012. France, Italy and Spain were the most represented countries, but there was also increased attendance from winegrowers based in countries such as Austria, Germany and Portugal.   Visitor numbers also went up — from 3,360 in 2012 to 4,160 in 2013 — with 24% of visitors coming from outside France. The majority of visitors were importers (19.80%), followed by wine merchants (18%) and wine traders (8.65%), with professionals working in the hospitality industry (6.50%) coming fourth.

Millésime Bio 2013 highlights its strength in organic-wine market

Joanna Routaboul - 12-mars-2013 17:59:29

Millésime Bio 2013, the organic-wine trade show that took place from 28 to 30 January 2013 in Montpellier (Southern France), was a great success. As the largest event of its kind, the trade fair welcomed 4,160 visitors — a figure that was up by 24% year on year.   The 20th Millésime Bio trade show, which is the principal B2B event for the organic-winegrowing industry, was a success. Organised by the Inter-professional Association of Languedoc-Roussillon Organic Wine, the event was held in Montpellier (Southern France) from 28 to 30 January 2013 and attracted 4,160 visitors, against 3,360 the previous year. This is a rise in visitor numbers of 24%, demonstrating the continuing growth of the specialist trade event.   The success of the trade fair further confirms its position as an international forum for the organic-winegrowing sector. Millésime Bio’s uniqueness, both in France and globally, lies in the fact that it only brings together exhibitors who hold the Agriculture Biologique (AB) certification for organic wine.   The Millésime Bio concept is unique in that the floor space, at the trade fair, is divided into identical turnkey booths: therefore, wine alone — its quality and its character — is what differentiates one stand from the next. The trade show also features conferences and self-service wine-tasting areas.   At the trade fair in January 2013, visitors from outside France accounted for 24% of the total. Of all the visitors, 19.80% were importers, followed by 18% who were wine retailers, 8.65% wine wholesalers, and 6.50% members of the hotel and catering trade.   Visitors mainly came from the USA and Canada (13.70%), Scandinavia (10.70%), the Benelux (10.60%), and Asia (10.60%), which included Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, mainland China, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam. Exhibitors from the UK and Ireland represented 7.40% of the total.   There was also a noteworthy diversity of nationalities among the exhibitors: 11 countries were represented, with France, Italy and Spain constituting the top three in terms of the number of players. Vineyards from Austria, Germany (13.30% of exhibitors) and Portugal raised their profile, with an increase in the number of estates represented at Millésime Bio 2013. Estates’ representatives and trade professionals from Chile, Egypt, South Africa and the USA also returned to the trade show, proving their loyalty for the third year in a row.   Overall, there was a significant rise in the number of countries and importers represented at Millésime Bio 2013, as compared to 2012. This increase reveals the impact that the International Business Forum had on attendance at the trade fair. The Forum, which was created by Sud de France Développement, the development agency for Languedoc-Roussillon products and tourism, enables the organisation of B2B meetings between wine producers and importers.   Millésime Bio 2013 provided the opportunity for professionals from the entire organic-wine sector, including from all producing countries and regions, to meet in one venue.   About Millésime Bio Millésime Bio was created in 1993 by Sudvinbio, the Trade Association of Languedoc-Roussillon organic-wine producers, based in Southern France.   For further information about the International Business Forum, please go to: http://fia-lr.com/en/   For further information about Millésime Bio, please go to: http://www.millesime-bio.com/en   For further information, please contact :    Quote ref. : FTPB3827 Ms Katherine WOODS - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 katherine.woods@ubifrance.fr View other press releases at : http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/

Champagnes de Vignerons takes you to Fulham Palace in March 2013

Amal Froidevaux - 07-mars-2013 15:46:57

Following on the success of earlier events, Les Champagnes de Vignerons, the trade body that represents champagne producers and co-operatives of growers in that region, will present its members’ know-how and production at an exclusive B2B event to be held in London on 27 March 2013. The wine tasting is organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK. On Wednesday 27 March, in an exclusive event, Champagnes de Vignerons will hold a tasting of its members’ champagnes at Fulham Palace (in London). The event will be held from 10.00am to 6.00pm. In order to register, journalists should contact the Press Office of the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in London (see contact details at the bottom of this press release). Les Champagnes de Vignerons is a collective trademark for the winemakers of the Champagne region (in eastern France): it was created in 2001 by the Syndicat Général des Vignerons (i.e. the Champagne Growers’ Union) in order to promote champagnes produced across the region’s vineyards. The collective brand — Les Champagnes de Vignerons (or ‘Winegrowers’ champagne’) — brings together all the area’s growers (vignerons) and co-operatives of growers that make champagne. The event of 27 March of this year, which is organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK, will give trade and media participants the opportunity to taste a range of champagnes that are full of character and steeped in tradition. The champagnes to be displayed at the tasting are not yet distributed across the British market, but the Champagnes de Vignerons trade association is confident there is proven and considerable potential for the sale of these champagnes with a difference across Britain. Key statistics illustrate the fact that the vineyards are a dynamic force and play a crucial role in the economy of the whole region. Les Champagnes de Vignerons represents 5,000 growers and co-operatives of growers, who make and sell champagne. As a sign of the producers’ independence, it should be stressed that 90% of the vineyards concerned are owned by the growers themselves. Overall, about a third of total champagne sales (31% precisely) are made by independent winegrowers and co-operatives of growers, which amounts to 100 million bottles per year on average. The Champagnes de Vignerons trademark constitutes an important and valuable symbol for each vineyard that belongs to the association. It is a brand name, but it is also more than that, since it carries strong values that blend tradition with expertise and authenticity. For Les Champagnes de Vignerons, the focus must be on the individual know-how of each grower — know-how which is passed down from generation to generation — and the diversity and quality of the wines produced. As a seal of excellence for the Champagnes de Vignerons brand, the label guarantees that every bottle of champagne is produced from vines grown by the vignerons themselves. It also ensures that the champagne concerned is produced directly on the winegrower’s estate or by a co-operative of growers. How to spot a Champagnes de Vignerons champagne could not be easier: on the bottle, the Champagnes de Vignerons label attests to the origin and quality of the champagne concerned. The label is represented by a specific and easily recognizable logo. Featuring colours that include black, gold or yellow as well as blue, the logo symbolises the different stages in the production of champagne — from the harvest to the cellar…and the tasting. Different winemakers place the logo on different parts of the bottle: on the back label, on the neck of the bottle, or on the cork (in which case it is affixed to the wire cap). In the unlikely event of the logo not being on display on the bottle, information listed on the label can be checked, which will indicate that it is a Champagnes de Vignerons champagne. (The label may carry various abbreviations, such as RM, which stands for Récoltant Manipulant ; RC, which stands for Récoltant Coopérateur ; CM, which stands for Coopérative de Manipulation ; and, finally, SR, which stands for Société de Récoltants.) The wine-producing areas for growers’ champagne are diverse. The complex characteristics of the local soil combine with the expertise and passion of the men and women who create the Champagnes de Vignerons, resulting in exceptional champagnes with true character. From a geological and geographical standpoint, Champagne is a truly unique winegrowing area, combining a climate that can be harsh, yet is tempered by the influence of the sea, with a mostly chalky sub-soil, which is uniquely receptive to sunshine. Champagne is also a remarkably diverse area, made up of 280,000 plots spread over the 35,000 hectares of the champagne Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée or AOC (i.e. the production area covered by the French authorities’ stringent certification-of-origin process). Four separate geographical areas (see below) comprise the designated ‘Champagne’ region, and each area gives the grapes a distinctive quality, which helps to construct the individual personality of each wine elaborated by the winegrowers. •The Montagne de Reims is a wide, low plateau, which overhangs the chalky plains. It stretches north-west of the city of Rheims (spelt ‘Reims’ in French), as far as Epernay. The main grape variety found in this area is Pinot Noir. •The Marne Valley, for its part, tends to be shale, clay or sand, and runs from the east of Epernay to the west of Château-Thierry. Pinot Meunier is the grape variety of choice in this part of the Champagne region. •On the other hand, La Côte des Blancs is blessed with chalky soil; this area stretches south of Epernay, from Sézanne to Vitry le François. Chardonnay is the main grape variety grown in La Côte des Blancs. •Finally, La Côte des Bar includes the area situated around Troyes as well as Montgueux, and it extends to Bar-Sur-Seine and Bar-Sur-Aube. In this part of Champagne, the most widely grown grape is Pinot Noir. The 27 March event in London will give trade and other professionals, specialist consultants, wine writers, editors and journalists the opportunity to discover a range of champagnes that hold great appeal thanks to their memorable quality, their unparalleled diversity, and their genuine authenticity. About Champagnes de Vignerons Champagnes de Vignerons is a trade association that was formed in 2001 by the Syndicat Général des Vignerons (or SGV) in Champagne. Its aim is to promote the champagne production of winegrowers and growers’ co-operatives across the eastern French region of Champagne. The wine tasting, which is organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the United Kingdom, will take place on Wednesday 27 March 2013 from 10.00am to 6.00pm at Fulham Palace, in London (SW6). To register, journalists should contact Ms Katherine Woods, Press Officer at the French Trade Commission in London, on 020 7024 3640 (press office), or by email, on katherine.woods@ubifrance.fr . •Fulham Palace Bishop’s Avenue London – SW6 6EA (UK) Nearest Tube station: Putney Bridge For further information about the venue, please go to: http://www.fulhampalace.org/ •To confirm your attendance, please contact: Ms Katherine Woods, Press Officer The French Trade Commission in London Haymarket House – 28/29 Haymarket London, SW1Y 4SP (United Kingdom) Telephone: 020-7024-3640 (Press Office) Email: katherine.woods@ubifrance.fr For further information about the event, please go to:  www.champagnesdevignerons.com
