FRANCE - Wine Paris and Vinexpo from February 13 to 15, 2023

From 13/02/2023 to 15/02/2023

FRANCE - Wine Paris and Vinexpo from February 13 to 15, 2023

Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris 2023 has established its reputation as an international marketplace for wines and spirits by welcoming over 51 countries alongside France, responding to their needs with a reliable benchmark event. From 13 to 15 February 2023, Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris will offer all its visitors a business experience with a global focus and all the potential afforded by an international range of products in the heart of the world’s lifestyle capital.


Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris stems from a desire shared by the entire industry to create an international benchmark event for wine and spirits professionals. After a two-year hiatus, this impetus allowed the event to go ahead in 2022 despite all the odds and to be successful, with visitor attendance from 106 countries.


On the back of a successful 2022 exhibition, Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris is ramping up its ambition to become a meeting point for the global industry. So in 2023, room will be made to host even more international producers, with 52 countries represented. This strong trend is the result of thorough canvassing by Vinexposium’s teams. For the past four years, they have connected with increasing numbers of industry members around the world.


In addition to its international aspect, Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris 2023 will become even more of a focal point for France’s wine regions and representative bodies, as evidenced by its marketing success.


On top of the ever-popular ON! programme, with its masterclasses, conferences, discussions and Wine Tech attendance, the Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris OFF line-up will acquire even greater significance. Designed to showcase the diversity of Paris and its gastronomy and to celebrate its incredibly talented chefs, restaurateurs and sommeliers, the OFF programme will turn wines and spirits into the beating heart of Paris. In 2023, the OFF selection will feature the finest wines and mixology through 180 cherry-picked venues and countless events hosted in each of them, from the boutique bar to the Michelin-starred restaurant.

Lastly, Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris is partnering with the ASI Best Sommelier in the World competition in 2023

The French sommelier organisation (UDSF), chaired by Philippe Faure-Brac, has the honour of hosting the 17th competition. The finals will take place in Paris on February 12, the day before Wine Paris & Vinexpo Paris opens. As part of the partnership, the exhibition will host the press conference by the international sommelier organisation ASI, with attendance by the 2023 winner from February 13 onwards. Also, a number of events focusing on sommeliers will be organised during the exhibition, including the “Chef and Sommelier” duos.
