Competing Nations Come Down2Earth for Greener Future

Competing Nations Come Down2Earth for Greener Future

Argentina, Chile, South Africa, USA and New Zealand are five New World countries that compete in the world wine market but will come together for the second year, sharing a panel at the Down2Earth exhibition at ProWein in March, where they will share their visions for a greener future and provide updates on what they are doing to promote sustainability.

Down2Earth, the three-day show within-a-show at the ProWein Trade Show to be held in Düsseldorf on March 27-29, will be held alongside the main Show. After apparently a highly popular debut that drew capacity crowds last year, these five countries are coming together for the second time.

A series of seminars, tastings and wine and food pairings are being planned. They will be chaired by top-rated specialists that include Lynne Sherriff MW, head of the Institute of Wine Masters,  Prof Monika Christmann of the Geisenheim Research Centre in Germany; wine writer Jürgen Mathäß; Pancho Campo MW; Chandra Kurt, a Swiss-based wine writer; and Felicity Carter, editor-in-chief of Wine Business International. They will be joined by three award-winning sommeliers- Romaine Audrerie; Alessandro Marchesan and Christina Fischer.

South African-born Sherriff says, “Down2Earth is an outstanding opportunity to showcase to the highly influential international wine community and the ongoing excellence and progress evident in the wines of the host countries.”

Prof Christmann says attendance is important for those concerned with sustainability in the wine industry: “It’s becoming a driving force for all of us in our daily life to protect our globe and preserve the world for future generations. We’ll explore how members of the wine industry can make a meaningful and lasting impact in learning how to protect non-renewable and scarce resources.”

Fischer, chair of the wine and food seminar, will be leading a line-up of wines from the five participating New World countries paired with modern German and international cuisine. “We’ll be looking for harmony and complexity to challenge our senses as well as opulence and sumptuousness in these combinations.”

The participating nations will also explore innovative New World wine pairings with typical German cuisine and showcasing exciting new developments in national signature wine varietals.
