Viti-Culture provides a showcase for interested and prospective growers to come and speak to experts and find out more about any aspect of wine production.  Whether you have an already established vineyard and winery, are looking to plant, or want to invest in your own production facilities, numerous exhibitors, from vineyard consultants, to land agents, specialist machinery manufacturers and dealers, winery equipment suppliers, agronomists, brand and packaging specialists, and professional service providers, attend Viti-Culture to advise on every aspect of establishing and managing a vineyard, to producing, packaging and marketing the wines

To our knowledge, there is no other event in the UK that provides a show-case b2b event where growers can access advice, supplies, services and have the opportunity to network together in a non-retail environment all in one place.

Following many months’ preparation and building anticipation from viticulturalists and winemakers across the UK, the inaugural 2019 Viti-Culture show proved to be a momentous success.

Taking place on Thursday 11 July 2019 at Plumpton College, Sussex, the first UK event of its kind, conceived and organised by Grape Vine Events with support from media partner Vineyard magazine, saw over 1,200 visitors through the gates.

The free-to-attend one-day show was designed to focus on supplies and services available to growers and winemakers by showcasing the very latest machinery and equipment as well as the myriad of professional services and supplies needed from soil to cellar.

Set against an incredibly picturesque backdrop of the South Downs, it certainly didn’t disappoint. 80 trade exhibitors were on hand to provide vineyard owners, managers, winemakers and those looking to plant their first vines, with specialist advice.

“As with all new events, the first year is about testing the water – or in this case, wine!,” said Karen Wheeler, director at Grape Vine Events Ltd. “While we were always confident how well the show would be received, the response from exhibitors and visitors alike has been outstanding and far-beyond what we could have possibly hoped for. Many exhibitors expressed their gratitude for having the right forum to showcase their business at last, while visitors relished the opportunity to hear experts from across the industry speak during the full day of seminars and meetings.”
