Strasbourg événements has 2 great surprises in store for us in 2014 !

Continued confidence from the OIV with a 5th grape variety, Pinot Blanc, at World Contests and, in order to increase the promotion and

sale of white wines, the opening up of the Trade Fair to all white wines.

2 events to be experienced on 12 and 13 April in the Strasbourg Palais des Congrès.

› A Fifth Grape Variety in World Contests !

In the great World Contest family, ask us for – Pinot Blanc !

In 2014, it will be the 5th grape to enter the World Contest family and follows in the footsteps of Sylvaner in 2013.

The Pinot Blanc grape has mutated from the pinot gris grape, giving a pleasant, tender wine with average acidity and a good balance

between sweetness and freshness. The wine is a pale yellow colour with a few green glints and is clear and bright, with fresh, discreetly

fruity notes of peach and apple and floral notes, a perfect expression of the primary aromas. It may accompany all simple

dishes, such as fish, white meats, poultry and egg dishes and also suits mild cheeses.

› Opening up the Cépages Blancs Trade Fair to all white wines (from every region and nation !)

After the success of the first show, and with the support and advice of its participants, Strasbourg événements is giving a new lease

of life to this show by opening it up to all white wines (single grape, assemblages, still and sparkling wines). The Salon des Vins Blancs

will give pride of place to exceptional products, which will include, not only Grand local vintages, but also gastronomy, the culinary

arts and gourmet bookstores…

As visitors pass from stand to stand, they will discover the amazing harmony between white wines and refined dishes and watch our

chefs as they concoct gourmet dishes “live”.
