DWI showcases regional classics at ProWein

01/17/2023

The German Wine Institute (DWI) is presenting "German Classics - The Classics of the German Winegrowing Regions" to trade visitors at this year's ProWein trade fair.


For this, the regional wine advertising associations have each selected one or two types of wine that best represent their winegrowing region.

At the DWI stand in Hall 1 (C120), a total of 20 regional classics from all 13 winegrowing regions will be available for free tasting all day from 19 to 21 March. The collection will also be presented in a moderated tasting on the first two days of the fair.

Trade fair motto with high market relevance

For DWI Managing Director Monika Reule, this year's motto for the well-attended trade fair is highly relevant to the market: "Regional classics create trust when buying wine and help to sharpen the profile of the individual winegrowing regions. In addition, regionality continues to play a major role in consumers' buying behaviour." Furthermore, the head of the DWI emphasises: "The grape varieties presented are our strengths and thus set Germany apart from the international competition."

In line with the "Classics", the "Dream Team Riesling and Pinot Noir" will be presented at the stand at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday and Monday of the fair. Another current tasting theme on all three days of the fair is the new, sustainable, fungus-resistant grape varieties, known in Germany as the PiWis.

"Love the wine you're with" is the motto once a day when the young winemakers of Generation Riesling invite visitors to the DWI stand for tastings.

The tastings will be hosted by German Wine Queen Katrin Lang and the two German Wine Princesses Juliane Schäfer and Luise Böhme in turn.
