The first Estonian Sommelier Association Wine Fair was held in 2006. Fairs take place every second year. The Wine Fair is able to bring together the purchase decision makers and wine lovers in a single space, together with the other operators in the wine business. As a result, taking part in the Wine Fair will enable one to gain market share, strengthen the brand image, make business contacts and capture new customers.
Association has a lot of sponsors and supporters. The main sponsor is Liviko, one of the largest Baltic companies dealing with quality alcoholic beverages.
