Slow Wine Fair 2023


Slow Wine Fair 2023: This unique fair unlike any other, will take place at the BolognaFiere from February 26th to the 28th

A tasting commission will select hundreds of wineries, to guarantee a varied catalog of good, clean and fair wines for Italian and foreign professionals and enthusiasts.

The Commission includes not only editors of the Slow Wine guide, but also journalists who come from other sources such as Gambero Rosso and Espresso, also on an international level, for example Deborah Parker Wong and Juan Gualdoni for Latin America.

The percentage of foreign companies in the first edition was 15% but in 2023 it will be greater and with more consistent characteristics. Also the result of the experience gained in 35 editions of SANA, the only reference trade fair for the organic and natural business community.

With the Slow Wine Fair, BolognaFiere has enriched and consolidated its range of events within the world of agri-food sustainability, involving a long-standing partner: FederBio.

For its debut last March 2022, despite the difficulties of the period, the Slow Wine Fair attracted over 6,000 enthusiasts, buyers and professionals to the Bologna exhibition center. Attendees were able to taste over 2,300 labels and get to know 542 wineries (half of which certified organic or biodynamic), from 20 countries around the world and from Italian regions.

The 2023 edition of the Slow Wine Fair deems to be truly promising in terms of the high quality wine exhibitors. Alongside the confirmed masterclasses, conferences, events in the Arena and of course the tastings at the tasting counter.

The fair has a strong connotation towards B2B and is aimed primarily at a professional horeca and Gdo, while Sunday afternoons are dedicated to the public enthusiasts.

Visitors will be able to enjoy a clear path around the event thanks to a layout made up of equal spaces for all the exhibitors, organized into territorial islands for both Italian and foreign wineries.

There are numerous new aspects that the Slow Wine Fair 2023 has in store for its audience. The first consists of the expansion of operators involved, which will also include producers of innovative technological solutions, systems, equipment and services connected to the wine supply chain, the true partners of sustainability. The second new entry, on the other hand, concerns the universe of spirits, distillates, bitters, liqueurs and much more.

The fair enjoys the support of ICE - Agency for the promotion abroad and the internationalization of Italian companies of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, of FederBio, and the patronage of the Emilia-Romagna Region and of the partnership with Amaroteca and ANADI - National Amaro Association of Italy.


February 26th – BolognaFiere, Pavilions 15 and 20 –  all wine enthusiasts and professionals can taste the thousands of labels on display at the tasting counter and chat with the producers at the Slow Wine Fair.

February 27th and 28th , on the other hand, are dedicated solely to professionals in the sector: restaurateurs, wine merchants, importers, distributors, cooks, sommeliers.
