At the Gastronomy-Fine Food Professional, the leading gastronomy trade fair for restaurant and wine professionals, November  5 at the RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands, a bright spotlight will shine on orange wines from different parts of the world. Wine producers with at least one orange wine in their portfolio are invited to join their orange and natural wine making colleagues from Slovenia, Croatia, Georgia, Italy, Spain, Austria, and present their wines in person. Apart from their fantastic orange wines you will have the chance to try their natural white, red, rosé and sparkling wines.




For 5 th november  one area of the exhibition hall will be reserved exclusively for orange wine producers to present their wines. The variety and gastronomic qualities of orange wines will be demonstrated during presentations, masterclasses and wine-food tastings, featuring dishes prepared by chefs as well as artisanal food products. 



Various food products will be presented, e.g. pumpkin seed oil, Hungarian Mangalica meat (ham, sausages, salami, pancetta, bacon), mediterranean and oriental spices, cheeses from various countries and olive oil from 300 year old trees.





Discover and explore the fourth wine colour! Orange wine might sound like a crazy modern invention, but it’s actually one of the oldest, most traditional ways of making wine from white grapes, but treating them as if they were red – so the skins are left in the mix. It’s a very natural, hands-off way to do things, without any of the additives or processing that are common in most modern wines. You’ll find unique flavours and aromas that just don’t exist in conventional white wines. Orange wines are truly in the middle, with the liveliness and drive of white wines, but the body and complexity of reds. They’re delicious, nourishing and authentic.





The 30th annual Proefschrift Wine Contest – for the first time including a special Orange Wine category. Orange wine producers who present their wines at the trade fair, are also invited to enter their orange wine(s) for the 30th Proefschrift Wine Contest. On November 5, awards will be given for the best orange wines in two price categories: up to 15 euros and above 15 euros (retail price per bottle). All winning wines of the wine contest will be exhibited in a special area of the fair. Contest rules and entry form available on request.




This is a unique opportunity to meet so many of the passionate family producers who make these wines, taste their produce and find out more about their regions and traditions. Besides the extensive assortment of natural wines, the fair will be enriched by producers of delicacies all made in a traditional manner and without any artificial additives.
If you’re ready to challenge your whole perception of wine, step outside the safe but boring confines of the supermarket shelves and really live a little, come and join us on 5 November.
