German wines at Vinexpo Hong Kong

The German Wine Institute (DWI) took part in this year's Vinexpo in Hong Kong (24-26 May 2016) to present a representative selection of wines from Germany's wine-growing regions. In addition to the tasting counter at the German pavilion, the DWI also offered several master classes.

For the first time, the DWI organised a Chinese Buyers Meeting and a Japanese Buyers Meeting and presented highlights from the exhibitors at the lounge of the German pavilion.

"2015 has been an exceptional vintage for German wine and we expect a lot of interest from Asian wine specialists at Vinexpo Asia-Pacific," says DWI Managing Director Monika Reule.

German Wines - Leading the Field Again Worldwide

Germany’s winegrowing regions are among the most northerly in the world. That is what makes German wines so distinctive: the grapes enjoy long periods of growth in moderate summer heat, which gives the wines their renowned lightness and fruity aroma. Except for two regions in eastern Germany, all the country’s winegrowing areas are in the south and south-west, where they are subject to the mild Gulf Stream climate from the west and the dry continental climate from the east.
