The health crisis surrounding the spread of COVID-19 and the government measures implemented to remedy it are exposing economic stakeholders to very immediate difficulties. Faced with this situation, the Vinitech-Sifel team is more mobilised than ever and is on hand at all times to respond to your expectations or answer any questions you might have. We would like to reassert that we remain hard at work on preparing Vinitech-Sifel and confirm that it will be held from 1st to 3 December 2020. Guided by our Scientific and Technical Committee, Vinitech-Sifel will be addressing issues such as the latest innovations in vine-growing and winemaking for the future. We are hard at work to make sure that everyone can find the answer to their challenges at the trade show. - The VINITECH-SIFEL team


Wine & Spirit Profiling

Wine & Spirit Profiling, an area dedicated to the sensory analysis and aromatic profile of wines and spirits (IFV booth, Hall 1).
Benefit from the aroma research undertaken by the IFV, the BNIC and Bordeaux Sciences Agro.

Unique tasting workshops free of charge

The French Wine and Vine Institute (IFV), the BNIC, Bordeaux Sciences Agro and Congrès et Expositions de Bordeaux have joined forces to present a unique tasting area focusing on the aromatic perception of wines and spirits, together with sensory analysis.

Visitors are offered a convivial way to address original sensory perception topics:

How do you define a wine’s aromatic profile and aromatic quality? How does the winemaking process affect a wine’s organoleptic profile? How can you increase pepper or red fruit notes in a wine? Can a pale rosé be aromatic? What are the mechanisms of sensory perception and how do they affect tasting? What range of aromas is found in cognac? What will be the sensory profile of future grape varieties?

Through tasting workshops, this 100m2 Wine & Spirit Profiling area (found Hall 1, IFV booth) will offer an opportunity to explore the aroma research undertaken by the IFV, the BNIC and Bordeaux Sciences Agro.
