Wine in Moderation: a must for ProWein visitors?

ProWein closed its doors after three intense days, welcoming an ever-increasing number of visitors. 61,500 guests of the wider wine sector, among which retail, HORECA, etc. made the trip, while 6,900 exhibitors represented 64 nations. As last year, Wine in Moderation was one of the exhibitors.
