Rosé is a trend topic: While the color spectrum of the pink all-rounder could hardly be more multifaceted, its flavor diversity also offers good reason to give the subject well-deserved attention. Sophia Langhäuser and Ilka Lindemann report about the ‘Best of Rosé’ Award.
Interview with Michael Degen, Executive Director Trade Fairs of Messe Düsseldorf
MEININGER'S has spoken with Degen about risks for a trade fair in times of a global pandemic, if size matters and if he is afraid of competition. And of course, we discussed the upcoming ProWein, its international focus and digitization issues as well as its biggest challenges.

At the end of April, the VDP.- Verband deutscher Prädikatsweingüter- association of around 200 top German producers held its first fair - the Mainz Weinbörse - since 2019, offering professionals the chance to taste the most recent vintages. Anja Zimmer reports.
The 54th Vinitaly closed with a significant drop in visitors, but still marked a new record. Of a total of 88,000 registered visitors, 25,000 were international buyers - 28% of the total. This was the highest ever share, ahead of the 26.3% at the last event, in 2019. In that year, however, all the numbers were bigger. The fair attracted 125,000 attendees, of whom 33,000 came from outside Italy.
More than 650 wineries gathered in Fira Barcelona this April to take part in the second annual Barcelona Wine Week (BWW). Meininger’s met up with exhibitors and experts to talk about what's new in the world of Spanish wine and what trends became apparent at this exhibition.
