With just a few weeks to go until the launch of Vinexpo 2015, make 14-18 June a firm date in the diary on Dourthe’s new stand: Les Terrasses – Thienot Bordeaux Champagnes – Hall 1 – stand A131.

vinexpo 2015

Vinexpo is the go-to event for wine and spirit industry professionals held in Bordeaux every two years. Over the course of 5 days, 2,400 exhibitors from 44 countries descend on Vinexpo to showcase their wines to professionals and journalists.

Dourthe, exhibitors since 1981, welcomes visitors to its new stand

Heavily involved in Vinexpo’s organisation since its launch in 1981, Dourthe was one of the very first exhibitors at the fair. Former Dourthe Presidents, Jean-Paul Jauffret and Jean-Marie Chadronnier, have both held senior positions as President of the Vinexpo board, from 1981-1995 and 2002-2009 respectively. Both were instrumental in expanding the fair to international markets.

This year, Dourthe will present a range of wines on its new Thienot Bordeaux-Champagnes stand. This will also be the opportunity to taste the latest 2014 vintage of our Vignobles Dourthe wines, discover the new packaging for Dourthe Grande Cuvée and also the new range of presentation and gift boxes designed exclusively to mark Dourthe’s 175th anniversary.
