Prowein: Italy conquering the Northern European market, which is worth more than 3 billion euros

More than 1,400 Italian wineries on the international stage in Dusseldorf (May 15-17), with focus on climate change, “zero alcohol” and logistics
Prowein 2022: Italy in Dusseldorf to conquer northern European markets

Germany in the lead, with 1.1 billion euros of Italian wine imported in 2021, and then the United Kingdom, with 742 million, and then France, the Netherlands, Sweden and Denmark, Belgium, Poland, Austria, Finland, Romania, Luxembourg and so on: the Northern European markets, for Italian wineries, represented a turnover of more than 3 billion euros in 2021, out of the 7.2 of total exports. With 2022, at least looking at January’s Istat data, off to a growing start everywhere except the United Kingdom. Markets that will be the main target of the more than 1,400 Italian wineries (by far the largest national representation) protagonists at Prowein 2022, which, after stopping in the two years of the pandemic, returns to Dusseldorf from May 15 to 17, with its international and exquisitely commercial vocation, with more than 5,500 exhibitors from 60 countries (including Finland, Hong Kong, Lithuania and Singapore).
“No other event in the world offers such a comprehensive range of products. Covid-19 cannot slow us down”, says Michael Degen, Messe Düsseldorf executive director. Of course, among many focuses and tastings, there will be no shortage of insights into issues and trends the industry is coming to terms with. From the impact to the management of climate change via the phenomenon of “low or zero alcohol” wine, which will be explored in depth at several times in the “Trend Hour Tastings”, to wine tourism, a phenomenon that, according to a study by Dwi and Hochschule Geisenheim, generated global sales of 29.9 billion euros in 2019, the last pre-covid year. And, in anticipation of a major restart of global wine tourism, the special exhibition “Caravaning”, which was born out of the collaboration between ProWein and the Caravan Salon in Dusseldorf, will also be on stage. Prominent among the major international tastings will be, as always, that of the Union des Grands Crus of Bordeaux, with more than 100 chateaux that will put the 2019 vintage in the spotlight, and the space dedicated to French bubbles, with the “Champagne Lounge”, but also with more than 120 Maisons present at the fair. Of course focus also on organic, “Organic World” with the international associations Biodyvin (France), Bioland and Consorzio Vignaioli del Trentino (Italy), Demeter, Ecovin and Vignerons de Nature (France) in addition to individual exhibitors mainly from Italy, Greece, France and Spain. And at a time when the issue of logistics and packaging for the wine industry are central, amid rising costs and shortages of raw materials and transportation services, the “Packaging & Design” space becomes decidedly interesting, where innovative solutions for the wine trade will also be presented. And signaling a trend that sees craft beers, ciders and other beverages increasingly competing with the nectar of Bacchus, “Same but different” also returns, the space where the key concepts will be craftsmanship and regionality of products.
But, of course, wine is the great protagonist, and Italian wine in particular, with a large presence, the largest (well ahead of France, second with 1,100 exhibitors), capable of expressing the variety of territories (from Alto Adige to Sicily) and companies, from small griffes to more structured realities, to large cooperatives.
