Italy: At the heart of the exhibitions

Italy, which lost its place as the world’s largest wine producing country for the first time in seven years, remains the second largest producer country exhibiting in 2024. Renowned for its long-standing wine tradition, its vineyard sites and the quality of its wines, Italy boasts 400 grape varieties permitted for its appellations,  including Sangiovese, used to make Chianti, Nebbiolo which forms the basis of Piedmont wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco, along with Trebbiano and Vermentino for the whites. Italy is home to some of the world’s most famous wine regions. From Tuscany to Piedmont and Veneto, via Sicily, Abruzzo, Puglia and Campania, some of them have preser ved traditional winemaking techniques such as the use of wooden tanks and terracotta amphorae.

Spain: The third largest exhibitor country in 2024

Renowned for its wine culture and production of high quality wines and spirits, Spain ranks third among the world’s producer countries and boasts nearly one million hectares under vine. Famed for its grape varieties such as Tempranillo, used to produce Rioja wines, Garnacha (Grenache), Albariño, Verdejo, Pedro Ximénez, Monastrell and Palomino, the cornerstone of its famous sherr y, Spain offers a rich treasure trove of wines. Many wineries use traditional winemaking methods such as maturation in oak barrels. These include red wines from Rioja and those of Ribera del Duero, whose vineyards extend over 110 kilometres of rolling hills straddling the river Duero.

During the three-day exhibition, Spanish exhibitors will share a hall with their neighbour, Portugal. Spain will be hosting many bodegas alongside the prestigious wineries belonging to Primum Familiae Vini, the Junta de Castilla y Leon, Gil Family Estates, Very Fine Wines and, for the first time, the Murcia region.
