The 1st edition of Hopwine is over!
The Hopwine team would like to thank you all for making this first edition a real success. We are looking forward to meeting you very soon.
Prowein, Les Grands jours de Bourgogne, London Wine fair, Primeur Week …
So many major canceled meetings. Today we are inventing an alternative for international producers and buyers of the wine industry so that they can continue trading.
During opening dates of the Hopwine fair, international wine professionals visit the wineries’ virtual stands, chat with them and choose the wines they want to taste.
At the end of the show, Hopwine repackages the producers’ bottles in certified 2 cl samples and ships them worldwide to professionals who have requested them.
To guarantee wines’ preservation, the rebottling takes place under an inert atmosphere using technology patented by our partner Vinovae. With more than 500,000 samples already produced, the process is approved by the largest players in the industry.
The samples contain 2cl. This quantity defined with the expertise of a sommelier corresponds to 2 sips. This is the quantity usually served during tastings.
Let us be the actors of this main change!
Thanks to 100% recyclable samples and by limiting the movement of people and goods as much as possible, Hopwine’s carbon footprint is incomparably low versus traditional fair.
Hopwine allows producers to exclusively target professionals they are interested in (for example: importers from Germany).
Hopwine is surely the cheapest fair in the world. Producers only pay fees depending on the number of visitors to their stand. Buyers have nothing to pay for the wine samples. Finally, all travel and expenses generated are avoided.
