A successful 47th Mainzer Weinbörse comes to an end.

With 1,800 visitors from all over the world, the VDP Wine Exchange Sunday was already a complete success and underlines the importance of the VDP Wine Exchange as the world's only trade fair for top German wines.

186 of 195 VDP.Estates offered a comprehensive overview of their vintage collections. More than 1,600 different wines and sparkling wines were served on the two days of the fair.


Expectations for the 2018 vintage were high beforehand. The fact that it lives up to its promises is shown by the consistently positive reactions of the international trade public. The 2018 vintage is described as "powerful, fruity with fresh acidity", but also "muscular and yet very elegant".

VDP President Steffen Christmann is also very satisfied that after the small vintage of 2017 "there is finally enough in the cellar again".
