In collaboration with the Beijing International Wine and Spirit Exchange, Vinopres has since 2016 developed a new event dedicated to Asian wines and spirits, which will travel every two years to a different region or country in Asia.
Its goal is to offer a vision of the region’s wines and spirits community, and improve access to Asia for lesser-known producer countries such as Armenia, Turkey and Georgia. China, currently the region’s main driving force, was the obvious choice for organizing the first event in 2016.
Almost 70 foreign guests —wine and spirits producers and exporters, journalists and writers, sommeliers and representatives of trade organizations— participated in a series of 24 conferences and master classes which allowed them to tour this vast continent and learn about Asian wines and spirits. The next event will take place in 2018.
