Save time with our online wine fair
After helping 500 wine and spirits producers, we have come to a simple conclusion:
– The global wine market is constantly changing
– Prospecting with professionals is an absolute must every year
– Taking part in trade fairs costs a lot of time, energy and money
These are the reasons, we re-invented the concept of the wine fair in 2020 by creating Hopwine:
The virtual wine fair with real tastings.
2 minutes to
The virtual fair
We take the responsibility to create your virtual stand.
Internationals professional buyers visit productors’ stand. They exchange with messages or conference call and they choose wines and spirits as they want.
We take care of every step about the reprocessing of your wines. Your bottles are reprocessing in little samples certified of 2 or 4cl thanks to a patented technology.
We send your samples in the fair all over the world to buyers who request these. Once again, we take care of everything: logistics and customs fees are taken care of by our teams.
Now forget everything you know about traditional trade fairs
And discover the most efficient solution ever created for wine and spirits producers
With Hopwine, non-trade visitors are a thing of the past.
When you take part in a traditional trade show, it is impossible to filter visitors, and, of course, you have to welcome everyone to your stand. With Hopwine, on the other hand, you choose the geographical areas and the business profiles you want to target:
– Are you an importer in Asia or in the United States?
– French wine merchant?
– A gourmet restaurateur in Italy?
It’s up to you to filter our list of 3000 participating buyers.
Now at last you can devote your time to tasks that are really important.
A face-to-face fair means travelling in France or abroad, following a set schedule, booking a hotel, getting tasting boxes ready, fitting out a space at the fair, and so on. And what are benefits for you?
Thanks to Hopwine, all this time spent preparating is a thing of the past. Our staff are reponsible for creating your virtual stand, which will only take you a few minutes. There’s no need to travel (not for you, your staff or your bottles)!
And the schedule? It’s up to you choose the timetable: juggle between pruning your vines, working in the cellar and video conferencing!
Our rates are all inclusive and adjusted to the budget you set.
There’s no more huge outlay for travel, transporting your bottles, accommodation and so forth.
Taking part in Hopwine means meeting visitors from all across the globe in your own home without any of the additional costs of a stand.
Be an agent of change!
Hopwine’s carbon footprint is tiny compared to a traditional fair’s thanks to 100% recyclable tasting boxes and small bottles. Plus the movement of people and goods is kept to a minimum.
Make sure you are visible to visitors worldwide.
There’s no bad location for your stand on Hopwine where no one can see you. Our system displays stands at random, and each time a visitor logs on, eight winegrowers are spotlighted in the welcome space.
Tasting is a moment to be savoured
Use the sample tasting boxes to give your prospects an optimal tasting environment: at home, in a quiet location, far from any of the disruptions of a traditional trade fair (noise, crowds, etc.).
They can then take the time to appreciate your wines and form a fair and firm opinion.

Do you have a question about our wine fair?
The answer is probably in our FAQ!
Everyone visiting the trade fair is a professional wine and spirits buyer (meaning you don’t have to deal with amateurs). They are importers, wine merchants, wholesalers, sales representatives, restaurant owners, sommeliers, large retailers and specialised journalists. They come from across the world.
They all filled in a profile that was checked manually by Hopwine staff. They capitalise on Hopwine’s innovation to source new producers without leaving home.
Three thousand trade buyers are now registered with new buyers signing up every day.
A Hopwine advisor will contact you to gather the information needed to create your virtual stand (logo, text, photos, …). We then take care of devising a highly visual, attractive interface.
Our staff help fast-track you online in the most nicest possible way.
The wine is repackaged in an inert, oxygen-free atmosphere. This guarantees that its organoleptic qualities are preserved.
Our patented technology is used and approved by the largest wine houses. Over 3 million samples have already been produced and shipped worldwide.
You don’t have to do anything. Hopwine handles all the logistics for your samples. We repackage your wines in certified 2 cl samples and we then handle the shipment of your tasting boxes all over the world.
We cover any customs fees. We work with UPS and our partner Vignoblexport for some international destinations that call for a specialist carrier. If some of your tasting boxes don’t find a taker at the trade fair, we will deliver the surplus to your address.
We repackage all wines and spirits regardless of the appellation and vineyard: Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhône, Alsace, Languedoc, etc. And not just French wines! Hopwine has already hosted exhibitors from Portugal, Spain, Italy, the United States, South Africa, and so on.
Only sparkling wines such as Champagne, Crémant, Prosecco, etc. are not repackaged. Nevertheless, exhibitors can still present their sparkling wines in addition to their still wines on their virtual stand.
If, after the trade fair, you have not allocated all your tasting boxes, you have two options:
- You can send two sample boxes to the same professional
- If you do not want to send double the number of shipments, we can send your tasting boxes to your estate so that you can use them for your own commercial prospecting.
Of course! As an exhibitor, you choose whether or not to send a tasting box to the professionals requesting it.
When a buyer requests prices or tasting boxes, you have access to their “visitor factsheet”. This allows you to browse the following information:
- Name and first name
- Address (country)
- Contact details (telephone, email, website, etc.)
- Invoice address
- Information about the compagny: number of people in the team, turnover, date of created, etc.
