Miami, Florida (PRWEB) October 9, 2008
The Miami International Wine Fair is one of the largest wine fairs in America, expected to attract over 7,000 industry professionals and wine aficionados who will have the opportunity to taste nearly 1,200 wines from 15 countries encompassing 65,000 square feet of exhibit space. Scheduled for October 25 through 27, 2008 the Miami International Wine Fair ranks among the top five wine shows in the country and attracts a growing national trade audience in addition to Florida-based consumer and trade influencers.
Known as a fine wine show, the Miami International Fair will feature wines from some of the world's established wine country leaders such as Spain, France, Italy, the United States, and Australia, many of which will present their finest wines in the Collector's Club, an exclusive selection in the Grand Tasting Hall. Perhaps the most exciting 2008 trend will be the increasing number of emerging wine countries who have chosen to debut their portfolios at the Miami International Wine Fair. New exhibitors include: Castilla León and Castilla La Mancha regions from Spain; Chateau Indage Ltd., one of the largest producer of wines in India; Romanian wineries such as Terra Romana, Prahova Valley and Byzantium; Wines from Brazil; Adega Cooperativa de Redondo from Portugal; and Wines of Uruguay.

"Together with our new partners Emporio Ferial S.A., we are helping to build the Miami International Wine Fair as a gateway for wineries to penetrate the U.S. market, and for regional and national wine buyers to discover new products.
