Listening, sharing knowledge and best practices, exchanging with new generations and inspiring new actions. Over the three days of the event, Moët Hennessy will present a program of talks addressing challenges facing the wine and spirits industry with transparency, pertinence and pragmatism.

  • How to maintain production while adapting to climate change?
  • What options does the sector have to preserve our most precious resource, living soils?
  • Will technological innovations pave the way for a new sustainable agriculture?
  • Why are wines and spirits particularly affected by climate change and biodiversity loss?

These are the kind of questions that will be debated by specialists from within Moët Hennessy Maisons, experts from around the world and those attending Vinexpo in a format designed to be open and dynamic: a series of discussions lasting 30 minutes followed by 10 minutes of questions and answers.

The conference will be interspersed with moments of sharing dedicated to tastings and master classes of the exceptional products from Moët Hennessy Maisons.

For many years, each of Moët Hennessy’s Luxury Maisons have been on the path to sustainable development. Five years ago, Moët Hennessy decided to unite the men and women of all the Maisons to construct a common project around the viticulture committee. More than 40 individuals came together to orchestrate the sharing of savoir-faire learned on the ground at our Maisons around the world.

This undertaking led to concrete actions: significant investments in environmentally-friendly equipment, training for farmers and wine-makers in new technologies, assistance in attaining responsible viticulture certifications and support for scientific and university projects to disseminate knowledge and transmit living soils to the future generations.

Vinexpo Paris 2020 will feature “Be Spirits” – an experience dedicated to spirits to meet the burgeoning trend of the spirits market around the world.The leading premium brands to be promoted in the L’Avenue – an area inspired by Parisian Haussmann architecture. WOW! World of Organic Wines is an area dedicated to organic and biodynamic wines and spirits.
