The Tasting area

Following the previous edition success, SITEVI is bringing back the tasting area! This year a new and improved version of this event will be held in the Forum (hall B5).

All visitors are welcome for this tasting experience which will involve vine-wine, olive and fruit & vegetable products.

Winegrowers and professionals from the three SITEVI sectors will lead these friendly and unique sessions from9am to 5:30pm (3:30pm on Thursday). Designed to facilitate meetings and exchanges, the tasting area is open to amateurs, enthusiasts and experts. Thanks to the program created in partnership with the IFV (French Institute for Wine and Vine) and the AFIDOL (Inter-professional French Olive Association), visitors will discover the current trends in the vine-wine, olive and fruit & vegetable sectors.

For instance, you will be able to attend and experience: 

  • Cabernet sauvignon in all its forms: An analysis of a leading international grape variety, one of the secrets behind the success of Bordeaux but also a rising star in California, Australia and South Africa. This tasting session will allow participants to discover its noble character and its organoleptic specificities in both French and foreign wines
  • Beginner's guide to tasting olive oil from the South of France: How to taste olive oil and recognize the three main categories of taste.
