The largest Wine Fair in Serbia and one of the most important ones in the region
As one of the most important wine festivals in the region, BeoWine has built an important reputation and as such it holds an irreplaceable position both in Serbia and the region as a place where new wine flavors are being placed on the market. Moreover, BeoWine continues to nurture the concept of a top quality exhibition program by promoting its participants and brands at the fair. The fair is becoming more and more appealing to people year after year as it keeps up with the global trends – wine consumption expansion, wine culture and wine tourism promotion in an attempt to stimulate winemaking and viticulture.
The biggest wine event in the country, both in terms of organization and quality of its exhibitors and accompanying programs, keeps pace with the ever-growing rise in wine interest in Serbia.
Under the slogan “Place Where Colors and Tastes Meet”
This year’s BeoWine Fair will showcase a clash of wine traditions and cultures from the Atlantic to the Caucasus, as well as the most renowned local and regional wine producers, wine cellars, wine houses and companies that distribute the “drink fit for the gods”, as well as producers of brandy and other beverages in halls 3 and 3A.
BeoWine continues to promote wine tourism and gastronomic specialties with great intensity followed by complete state-of-the-art winemaking and wine growing equipment.
Over 130 exhibitors from 14 countries
This year, the exhibitors have shown great interest in taking part in BeoWine Fair. Aside from Serbian wines, this year’s fair will showcase variety of wines from Georgia for the first time, as well as those traditionally presented from Italy, Germany, France, Croatia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Northern Macedonia, Montenegro, Poland, Austria, Turkey and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
A long tradition of winemaking in Georgia makes this drink an essential part of this country’s national identity whose people make wine in “kvevri” clay jugs, for which reason their wine has been included in the UNESCO list of cultural heritage in the world. Wines from this country will be presented at the BeoWine 2020 in line with the wishes of many wine lovers in Serbia, who have so far been deprived of Georgia’s oenological treasure.
Italy, a country of wines that are very popular with us, will be presented at the exhibition stand that will represent all regions of Italy, and therefore a wide variety of labels.
As regards Croatia, we are expecting wineries from Peljesac and Istra at a joint stand, as well as individual olive oil producers from Istria region.
Aside from foreign exhibitors, the largest numbers of winemakers will be coming from Serbia. These will include new, small family wineries that create bold, exciting wines made in line with the world trends, whilst already known and traditional participants of the BeoWine Fair will be once again returning to Belgrade Fair.
Gastronomic Section at the Wine Fair
One of the features of this year’s Wine Fair program is gastronomy, as well as the opportunity to learn more about wine and food pairing, since the fair will be featuring cheese producers from France, Herzegovina and the region, as well as producers of Herzegovinian and Montenegrin prosciutto, importers and distributors of Italian products, handmade chocolate and other gastronomic delicacies.
Serbia on the World Wine List
The fair atmosphere is an irreplaceable atmosphere in which foreign participants and visitors are presented with the Serbian wine list, as well as with its best products, rich tradition and willingness to enter the world stage.
On its way to become a significant destination on the world wine list, Serbia is showing the willingness to empower its fruit and agricultural branches, as well as the commercial aspect necessary for amassing its products.
BeoWine Wine Fair is becoming more and more popular year after year, for which reason it keeps pace with the global trends – wine consumption expansion, wine culture and wine tourism promotion in an attempt to stimulate winemaking and viticulture.
The event itself represents an opportunity for manufacturers to meet each other, create network with distributors and enter new markets. The organizer of the event merely wishes to enhance business meetings, promote attractive offers, and contribute to presentation of their participants and enhancement of their business image.
Sponsor of BeoWine Fair 2020: Coca-Cola HBC Company
Coca-Cola HBC Company will introduce a number of brands, whilst their brand Rosa Water (in Serb. Voda Rosa) will be the official water at this year’s wine show. Among other Coca-Cola HBC brands, the audience will recognize the Golden Brandy, Bulldog Gin, Jack Daniel’s, Aperol, as well as a whole host of premium spirits where visitors will have the opportunity to taste extraordinary cocktails made by world-class bartenders right there on the spot and who will be using the latest mixology trends.
Accompanying program – Hall in Gallery No. 3
Wine Fair will be open and adequately equipped for the first time for the purpose of filming the local series entitled The Secret of the Vine, in the gallery of Hall 3, for which reason BeoWine will be under the watchful eye of a film camera, meaning that exhibitors themselves will be filmed as well.
