Millésime Bio increases floor space for organic wine in 2014

04.11.2013
The Millésime Bio trade show will be held from 27 to 29 January 2014 at the Exhibition Centre, in Montpellier (France).

Sudvinbio, the organizer of the trade show, has increased capacity with the addition of an extra hall, in order to welcome over 4,000 industry professionals and 800 exhibitors. Millésime Bio focuses on wine-tasting and the trade; thanks to an array of conferences, it constitutes a unique professional forum for the organic-wine market.

Millésime Bio, one of the foremost international events in organic winegrowing, is a unique concept that brings together organic wines from a variety of French regions and from many countries outside France. The trade show provides a platform for dialogue and exploration through conferences, and thanks to its open wine-tasting areas.

The opening of a third exhibition hall for the 2014 event, to be held in Montpellier in late January of next year, will allow for more exhibitors and will create optimum conditions for wine-tasting.

The 2013 event welcomed 689 exhibitors from 11 countries, which equated to a 5% rise in the number of producers and traders, as compared to 2012. France, Italy and Spain were the most represented countries, but there was also increased attendance from winegrowers based in countries such as Austria, Germany and Portugal.

Visitor numbers also went up — from 3,360 in 2012 to 4,160 in 2013 — with 24% of visitors coming from outside France. The majority of visitors were importers (19.80%), followed by wine merchants (18%) and wine traders (8.65%), with professionals working in the hospitality industry (6.50%) coming fourth.

The organic-wine market is steadily increasing in size and importance, with a 6% rise in the land area given over to organic-wine production in France between 2011 and 2012. Over a four-year period, the surface area devoted to organic winegrowing in France has almost tripled. The three leading French regions are Languedoc-Roussillon (51 acres, up 4% in one year), Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (36 acres, up 8%) and Aquitaine (24 acres, up 3%). Worldwide, France is in second place — behind Spain and ahead of Italy — in terms of the size of its organic-winegrowing sector.

According to a consumer survey carried out in France by market-research specialist company IPSOS in 2013, one in three people polled indicated regularly or occasionally drinking organic wine. The industry turnover in 2012 stood at €413 million overall (up 15% in one year). Export sales — to countries such as Germany, Japan and the USA, among others — have risen and, at €58 million, now represent 19% of the turnover of the organic-food-and-drink sector.

The prime distribution channel for organic wine is direct sales (36%), followed by retail outlets specializing in organic products (27%), mass-retail food stores (19%) and, finally, small shops (17%).

About Sudvinbio

Sudvinbio was formed in 1991 by organic winegrowers in order to collectively promote their wines. Formerly called Interprofessional Association of Organic Wines from Languedoc-Roussillon (AIVB-LR), it was renamed Sudvinbio in 2012.

Today, Sudvinbio is held in high regard by industry professionals and by the authorities as an active and dynamic association which, through its actions, has widely contributed to enhancing the profile of organic wines from Languedoc-Roussillon, and that of the organic-wine sector in general.

Millésime Bio, the trade show of reference for the organic-wine sector, will be held from 27 to 29 January 2014 at the Exhibition Centre, in Montpellier (Southern France).

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
