Exhibitors from 25 countries and counting are readying for Vinexpo New York 2020 . Now in its third edition, the trade-only event takes place March 2-3, at Manhattan’s Javits Center. Buyers and decision makers are invited to attend the event, saving $50 with early registration. The exposition features hundreds of exhibitors, an organic pavilion, master classes, conference sessions and more.
Master classes include one hosted by Sonoma County Winegrowers. Participants will taste wines from top Sonoma producers and learn how they can communicate the value of sustainability to their customers. Sonoma County’s winegrape acreage is now 99% sustainable. Crus Bourgeois Du Médoc returns for their third year presenting a master class, while Austrian wine and spirits glassmaker Riedel will host two classes for the 2020 edition, and Agence De L’alimentation Nouvelle-Aquitaine (ANNA) will spotlight cognac.
Conference sessions include panel discussions and presentations by Wine Spectator, VinePair, SevenFifty Daily, the IWSR, and BDS Analytics. The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), the official education partner of Vinexpo New York, will provide a variety of educational content to attendees throughout the two days.
The 2020 exhibitor list features hundreds of producers and US importers, including:
- US importer, USA Wine West, LLC, showcasing wines from France, Spain, Italy, New Zealand and Australia.

- Shabo (Ukraine) is exhibiting based on its stature among U.S. wine and spirits shows and because New York is its primary target market in the U.S. Shabo will present its still and sparkling wines, brandy, vermouth, its grape and wheat vodka and several wines and brandies produced from its vineyards in Georgia.
