#BonjourProWein Showroom – Hall 11, booth #A159
For the 3rd year running, the #BonjourProWein Showroom will showcase a selection of the 100 most notable French wines and spirits chosen through an earlier tasting by a European jury jointly recruited by Weinwirtschaft and Business France.
The opportunity for professionals to discover "a representative selection of the latest vintages - French savoir-faire will shine for ProWein's 25th anniversary!"
Peter Pröbstl, Buying Director for Wines at Edeka and member of the jury found some "full-bodied, well-structured genuine wonders" and commented that the selection tasting "reflected the diversity of wines and grape varieties from France".
After 25 years, it still feels like the first day!
