Popping corks at the 39th London Wine Fair

39th London Wine FairSampling the world’s greatest wines, meeting other wine experts and learning about the latest trends – it’s all in a day’s work for specialist wine suppliers like us.

This year’s prestigious 39th London Wine Fair, a three-day event from 20th to 22nd May, featured 14,000 wines from 32 countries, curated tastings, industry briefings and an exciting Innovation Zone showcasing new non-traditional wine styles such as fruit wines, blue wine and bourbon aged wines. So, as you can imagine, it really is an unmissable destination for anyone in the business of wine.

Discovering the best new wines for you

An international trade event like the 39th London Wine Fair in Olympia gives us the opportunity to source the most interesting wines for our personalised wine and corporate wine gifts. At Esoterica, one of the outstanding parts of the show, you can be introduced to some amazing niche wines from passionate buyers. And at Wines Unearthed, you can meet producers who are set to import into the UK. This means you can seek out phenomenal still and sparkling wines and champagnes that are yet to feature on other UK wine lists, shelves or websites.

The London Wine Fair is also a chance for us to top up our wine knowledge, with masterclasses on wine regions and styles to skills training on topics such as nosing, food and wine pairings and assessing quality, run by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET).
