Chile has been a regular wine producer since the 19th century, although its wines did not become popular until the last few decades of the 20th century.
Currently, with their distinct French influence, Chilean wines are the most exported in the Americas and are the fourth most exported in the world. Around 90% of the wine it produces is exported.
The main importers of Chilean wine are European countries, particularly the UK, although the USA accounts for 25% of Chile’s wine exports. China is another of the largest importers of Chilean wine, particularly in bulk.
WHAT IS THE WORLD BULK WINE EXHIBITION?
The WBWE is the most important international bulk wine exhibition, bringing together major international wine producers who produce 75% of all bulk wine for export.
The majority of the year’s bulk wine import and export business is done at the exhibition, making it the perfect place for your business to get to know new wineries, importers, traders and logistics service providers.
In addition to being the nerve centre of the bulk wine industry for two days, the World Bulk Wine Exhibition offers a variety of parallel activities such as seminars, tastings in The Silent Tasting Room where you can sample more than 400 different wines, food and wine pairings, and, of course, the annual bulk wine competition where a panel of judges from 17 countries on the five continents presents awards for the best wines.
