The Wine Regions Event is a new wine promotion event in Amsterdam focusing on wine regions & small upcoming countries.

Wine regions from all over the world are able to showcase their wines and philosophy to the Dutch wine professionals.

This years venue is Amstel Boathouse Amsterdam. This outstanding venue offers different areas where you will find a combination of small stands where there is a minimum of 3 wine producers per wine region and extended stands where there are more than 12 wine producers per wine region. We offer a different area for workshops and the meeting area.

We already have more than 500 visitors subscribed, which are all wine professionals from the Netherlands including retailers, importers, sommeliers, press and bloggers.

Event date will be March 14th 2018, which is 3 days before Prowein in Dusseldorf starts. A perfect chance for wine regions to combine both events and meet the Dutch wine professional.



The event is a joint effort of Pitch PR, (according to Meininger’s Wine Magazine “The most significant PR agency in the Netherlands”) and Perswijn; the leading Dutch magazine for wine enthusiasts and professionals.

Wine Regions Event provides 3 possibilities for participants: basic, extended or tailor made. Every participant represents and communicates one wine region, with a minimum of 3 different producers/domaines within that region. This event is not suitable for single producers, so they have to unite to represent one appellation of one region.

Contact us for more information or tailor made proposal.

Deadline for registration: February 1st, 2018
