The 7th Wine Festival

In 2021 the Wine Festival took place on the roof garden terrace of the Haitian Hotel. The participants who were on site on the first two evenings could fully enjoy the spectacular set up.

Unfortunately all outside activities had to be stopped suddenly because of a typhoon in Qingdao. It took spontaneous hard work to secure the tents and move the fridges full of wine to safe places.

However some parts of the program could be continued inside:

The wine class, co-organized with the region Rheinland-Pfalz, was particularly successful and gathered a large crowd as the wine educator Allen Gao introduced different wines from various regions in Germany.

The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs invited members and guests for the second consecutive year to discover their gourmet association with a line-up of German and Alsatian wines and a food menu designed by the Haitian Hotel.

Our thanks go to the sponsors and partners who have supported us through the year, and all the visitors, some of them coming from far away in spite of the risks and Iimitations.

We hope to meet you again next year!

Wine529 at the 2021 Chengdu Food and Drinks Fair

From April 7th to April 9th 2021, Wine529 participated in the biggest wine fair of the year in Chengdu. It was the 104th edition of the fair, which was canceled last year in the midst of Covid outbreak in China. More than 900 wines and spirits exhibitors have been waiting for two years and one could feel a considerable level of excitement as about 100 000 visitors crowded the eleven halls on the first day.

Wine529, the wine brand created by IEA International Trading in China, was represented for the second time in the German Pavilion, an exhibition area organized by Wines of Germany gathering 24 exhibitors. There was an significant increase of the number of visitors, showing the growing interest for German wines in the market and the recovery of the wine industry after a difficult year 2020 that saw the trade disrupted many times in several Chinese cities and most fairs canceled. Riesling is now a hot topic in the Chinese wine industry and the recent Riesling birthday celebration on March 13th was all over the social media in the past month.

Wine529 represents in China six German wineries from Palatinate, Rheinhessen, Rheingau, Württemberg and Franconia; and one winery from Austria in Carnunum. Visit our website to understand more about our wine activities in China :
