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: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
