Having some kind of knowledge of wine and the vast culture that it expounds can be a handy card up the sleeve of many a business executive. While wines have been produced for ages, in the last two or three decades a tremendous rebirth of interest has taken place with wine producing regions springing up in all corners of the World.
However, there is no escaping the fact that the birthplace of wine making is France with several regions of the country earning international recognition for their produce. One of them is Alsace, and for those who have an interest in discovering how wine is produced, beginning from the latest techniques in producing grapes for wine, to producing and storing the wines themselves, then a visit to the forthcoming Alsace Wine Fair is strongly recommended.
Alsace Wine Fair is a leading event in France will be held between the 10th and 15th of August 2012 at the Colmar Parc des Expositions Avenue de la Foire aux Vins in Colmar, France.
Even though it goes under the umbrella of a wine fair, what will make the event especially interesting to any visitor is that it actually covers all sectors of the wine making and hospitality industry that works hand in hand with it.
Exhibitors at the Alsace Wine Fair will be able to visit stands exhibiting specialised equipment relating to wine, including agricultural materiel with automated harvesting machines, all the latest development in irrigation systems for wineries and wine cellars and hundreds of other items used in the industry as well as individuals who have become firm followers of wine culture. Every year, the event attracts more than 300 exhibitors who are ready and willing to discuss their products and services to those from the industry as well as those who have just a passing interest. Obviously the major attractions for most visitors will be the wine tastings, with the local growers, of who they are plenty, always ready to give their guests the opportunity to test some of this their current vintages.
And what makes the Alsace Region that bit different from the other wine regions of France is that in this region a wide variety of grapes are grown and wines produced compared instead of specialist varieties per region such as Champagne, which is only produced in the region of the same name.
