Warsaw Wine Experience – the most prestigious Fine Wine Event

Warsaw Wine Experience is considered one of the most prestigious wine events in Poland and hosts the most prominent wine exhibition in Poland, bringing together end consumers and B2B representatives. The wine market in Poland has grown significantly over the past 32 years (+10% growth by volume each year). Poland already drinks more wine than Belgium and Sweden. The Polish market has great potential: according to the Global Compass 2020 report published by Wine Intelligence, Poland is one of the five most attractive wine markets in the world. According to a survey by the Geisenheim University for ProWein, Poland is Europe’s third most popular wine market. A team of seasoned wine communicators decided to tap on the potential. In 2012, they launched the Winicjatywa website, which skyrocketed to 500,000 readers per year. In 2017, they kickstarted Ferment, a seriously beautiful magazine for wine lovers. The Ferment family of products now includes a magazine, website, wine awards, wine school, wine tourism agency, events, and launched in 2019—Poland’s brand new prosumer wine fair.

Event history and visiting Warsaw Wine Experience in 2023

The Warsaw Wine Experience, which took place for the first time in 2019, was founded by a team of experienced wine professionals. In 2012, they launched the Winicjatywa website. In 2017, they created Ferment, a magazine for wine lovers. Currently, the Ferment family of products includes a magazine, a website, wine awards, a wine school, a wine tourism agency and, launched in 2019, a new wine fair in Poland for consumers – Warsaw Wine Experience.In 2023, Warsaw Wine Experience, held in October, attracted representatives of trade, winemakers and wine lovers. The organizers reported the participation of 45 exhibitors from 12 countries. According to some economists, by 2035, average incomes in Poland could exceed those in the UK. Regardless of whether this happens over the next 12 years, there is no doubt that wine producers who once considered the UK, home of WSET and Masters of Wine, their main export destination are now paying much more attention to the rapidly developing Polish market. The Warsaw Wine Experience will become an increasingly important date in the international calendar, competing for audience attention with those taking place in other wine-producing countries.
