Prowein Germany 2022

Details &
registration

ProWein is Europe’s most important wine event, attracting more than 60,000 visitors from across the world, including major buyers from Europe, USA, Canada and Asia.

Important announcement:

After carefully assessing the situation, Wine Australia has taken the difficult decision to not take a stand at Prowein, Germany 2022.

Despite waiting for as long as possible, there remain too many uncertainties thrown up by the pandemic to be able to justifiably take a stand, including travel restrictions in Australia, Covid secure protocol at the fair, and quarantine restrictions.

It was not an easy decision to take, but we look forward to returning to the fair in 2023.

For further information please refer to our FAQs.

If you have any questions at all on this subject in the meantime, please email Laura Jewell MW on laura.jewell@wineaustralia.com.
