As tasty as it gets
The touch of ProWein is the right touch and definitely the right place to be for any wine enthusiast, not to mention for wine business structure and professionals. ProWein has at his 20th anniversary definitely proven to be the world synergy of the taste on the pallet. With the 4,800 exhibitors from 50 countries and about 45,000 international trade visitors, this year not only that fascinated with its size, wonderful warm people, wine makers, wine lovers, exceptional, daring new designs of wine labels it mainly opened the eyes to see what The wine is really all about.
With the Editor in Chief we have looked into the backstage of wine making by meeting wonderful, warm, creative wine makers, wine ladies who are with their touch and fingerprints bringing into the identity of the wine and the whole story of its representation. The acknowledgement that the wine is really more about who stands behind the label in itself that what is standing in front of you has been the top notch of ProWein 2014 at least from my humble individual wine lover perspective.
