THE EXPANSION OF ORGANIC WINES
The 27th edition of “Millésime Bio”, the largest organic wine fair in the world, takes place January 27-29, 2020 at the Parc des Expositions in Montpellier, France
The “Millésime Bio” show is a tool for promoting organic wines and the 300 member producers of Sudvinbio, all winegrowers in Occitania. A unique concept in the world, a qualitative and international attendance constantly increasing!
This year, the show will break new attendance records. 1,300 exhibitors are expected.
The enthusiasm about organic wines:
We have witnessed an explosion of conversions in the past two years. If we now have 65,000 hectares certified and 28,000 in conversion in France, we will have 115,000 hectares of organic vines in 2023. France will have the second organic vineyard in 2021, a place we should never have lost. As for the Occitanie region, it has 34,827 hectares in organic and conversion, which makes it the first region of France, ". With winegrowers from all over the world, it is ready to receive 7,000 visitors to Montpellier.
Some consider it to be a simple fashion trend, others consider that organic wine is a key trend in the sector. Despite a downward trend in wine consumption in France, that of organic wine, meanwhile, is increasing both in value and in volume. Organic wine is gradually becoming part of consumption habits: wine producers can no longer ignore it. More and more of them are switching to organic production. The wine sector will have to rely on the strategic weight of organic in the years to come.
The world's top three producers of organic wine (by size in hectares of vineyards dedicated to this segment) are now Spain, Italy and France. The keenest organic consumers come from Germany, France, the United Kingdom and the United States.
