What do visitors say about BWW?
I attended BWW for the first time as a hosted buyer in 2020. It was a very successful event and I met with many exhibiting wineries. The wines from Spain are some of the best in the world and attending BWW is a way to connect with wineries from all over the country.
Participating in BWW is always a great occasion to meet Spanish producers, prospect new partners, taste the new vintages and follow the trends on Spanish Vitiviniculture. For years now Spain has been gaining market share in the Brazilian market with our customers understanding the great quality, variety and unbeatable value for money we can find in the several regions and D.O.s.
When you buy wine everything counts, colour, smell, taste and the feeling about winery. We sell not only wines, we sell stories that is why on-line meetings could never replace contact face to face. In 2022 I was invited for the first time to BWW and the fair was perfect: many interesting wineries, one special Mencia from Ribera Sacra and much more.
For us, as importers, BWW is a very attractive fair because it has, for example, a large area with natural wines. The selection of wineries is also quite interesting and it is very easy to make contact with new wineries and to meet with wineries we already work with. The hosted buyers programme is also an advantage, as it is possible to make appointments with potential new wineries in advance.
Attending Barcelona Wine Week is always a pleasure for those of us involved in the wine industry. It is a space where we have the opportunity to learn about trends, new wineries and proposals of great interest to bring to consumers who are passionate about viticulture in other markets such as Mexico, where wine consumption and interest in new labels is growing day by day.BWW, es de las mejores ferias a las que he asistido, siempre comprometidos con superarse en cada edición, presentando una gran selección de expositores y actividades que enriquecen la experiencia.
Spanish wine is the most popular category for consumers in Ireland. It is incredibly important for us to have a strong range of wines from across Spain and BWW allows us to spend three days focusing ourselves on the range of wines and current trends. We will continue to use BWW to help us source new and exciting wines for the foreseeable future.
In BWW I was able to find what I needed within the 3 days of the event and completed my purchase plan for Spanish wine for the year. BWW is definitely a one-stop solution for quality Spanish wine and I highly recommend it to any wine buyer!
The wine week is always an excellent opportunity to meet wine makers of Spain and get to know more about their wines. Expert advise about wines has always been essential to us in making informed purchasing decisions especially when taking on new brands.
The 2022 Barcelona Wine Week was one of the best wine fairs I have attended in my career. The excellent Matchmaking system planned out my schedule efficiently, and the quality and ethos of producers I met was very high, especial in the Artisan area. I purchased 11 new wines from 6 new producers I met in Barcelona, and as a result Spain has risen to the #2 country in sales at my company, WineSpark.
