Considered Europe’s most important wine event, ProWein is a three day trade fair, which takes place every year in Düsseldorf in Germany. Wine Australia returns to ProWein this year, with a large stand in the middle of the New World hall.

With over 500 wines, tasting events every day, ample meeting space, a wine bar and happy hours, the Wine Australia stand is the place to be at ProWein.

Quality, diversity and innovation are the hallmarks of Australian wine and this is exactly what will be on show at ProWein.  Drop by the stand to taste through a diverse range of wines or come along to one of our events. Registration is not required for any of the events, just turn up at the specified time and location.

Are you a winery looking to exhibit?

Exhibitor registration for ProWein 2018 and ProWein 2019 has closed, but we are taking expressions of interest for other events. Register for UK and Europe market programs.
