The strongest Portugal at Prowein 2011
1 April 11
A total 197 companies and organizations of all Portuguese wine regions were present at the event. A record turnout.
This highlights the great interest of wine companies in the German market. Portugal was the 6th most-represented country. With 3600 exhibitors from 50 countries and 38,000 trade visitors in 2011, the ProWein continues to represent the largest European fair for the wine sector. In the 2011 edition, ViniPortugal organized a large collective pavilion with ??800 m2 area. It included 129 respected economic agents, the wine commissions of Alentejo and Lisbon and the Instituto do Vinho, do Bordado e Artesanato da Madeira (IVBAM). In direct vicinity stood the collective stand of the Instituto dos Vinhos do Douro and Porto (IVDP, with about 40 exhibitors), and the Commission of the Viticulture of Vinho Verde (16 companies). ViniPortugal's stand daily organized several wine tastings commented by respected journalists and German sommeliers. The impact and high quality of Portugal's participation in this event was praised by both industry experts and German/international journalists and multipliers.
