At a time of expansion in the territory of the DO, three more wineries than the last edition of 2020, join the fair in order to gain visibility and open to the world as a winery and as an exceptional and unique wine territory .
Around 60 Designations of Origin and 650 wineries are taking part in this second edition, which focuses on sustainability, international business and digitalisation as major avenues for the future.
Within the fair you will be able to know, taste and explore a large part of the wine proposals of each winery together with its wine tourism offer related to the DO Pla de Bages Wine Route.
The participating wineries are: Collbaix – Celler el Molí, Heretat Oller del Mas, Mond Obert, Abadal, Celler Cooperatiu d’Artès, Les Acàcies, Sanmartí, Exibis, Grau i Grau and Entrebosc. You can find them in Hall 8, Stand 244.

Presentation and tasting of five wines. A journey through different varieties to tell the history and unique wine heritage that is the inspiration for the present and future of a territory where wine is cultivated.

The BWW was originally scheduled to be held in February and was postponed due to the pandemic. This has made this edition coincide with the Food Fair and the B-travel tourism show also in Barcelona. This coincidence makes us expect a very good influx of professional public at this fair. You can find more information on the web: barcelonawineweek.com
