  • Canned wine is catching on. it’s not unusual to find cans of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and rosé on store shelves and being hawked at music festivals. Once considered a novelty, cans have burst into the mainstream, enticing young wine drinkers to pop the tab with their easy-drinking style, convenient packaging and value. Cans are one of the fastest-growing forms of alternative wine packaging on the market—a burgeoning category that includes bag-in-a-box and Tetra Paks, the same packaging being used for juice boxes. Last year, canned wine sales jumped 69 percent to more than $69 million, totaling 739,000 cases in retail outlets tracked by Nielsen. That’s up from just $2 million in sales in 2012.

  • A question mark hangs over the future of Vinexpo Bordeaux in the wake of last week’s announcement that its sister show, Vinexpo Paris, will merge with rival trade show Wine Paris for a fair in the French capital in February 2020. Will Vinexpo return to Bordeaux in 2021? The answer is yes, for now. "We're very happy to announce that Vinexpo Paris and Wine Paris have decided to join forces to create one single event together," Vinexpo CEO Rodolphe Lemayse told Wine Spectator. He described the discussion with Wine Paris as "short and efficient." He also said that the Bordeaux edition requires a catharsis. "We need to revisit what is the value proposition at Vinexpo Bordeaux. Bordeaux should not be just an exhibition space. It's over."

  • Act for Change, a symposium on climate change, proved a highlight at last week’s Vinexpo Bordeaux. "The Symposium was a smash," said Rodolphe Lamyese, CEO of Vinexpo. Organized in partnership with Wine Spectator and moderated by CNN's John Bittermann, the symposium gave the wine trade a rare opportunity to listen to a multi-disciplinary panel—international experts in viticulture, winemaking, cork production, politics, science, economics and geography—presenting recent research as well as action strategies.
